Rochdale Sixth Form College (RSFC) opened in 2010 to address the significant underachievement in A Level performance in the borough. Since then, it has raised achievement in the area dramatically and is recognised nationally as a Centre of excellence. The college is Ofsted outstanding, and regularly one of the highest performing colleges in the country according to the DfE’s performance tables and national achievement rate tables.

The Altus Education Partnership was formed in April 2017. It is a multi-academy trust formed by the governing body of Rochdale Sixth Form College and dedicated to the improvement of education in the borough of Rochdale. The Trust’s mission arose from and built upon the successes and values of the sixth form college. In short, our mission is to create a family of academies from early years to 18 that enables students in the borough to progress to an aspirational career, a fulfilling life and to make a positive contribution to society.

To work at RSFC you must aspire to be an outstanding colleague. You must be willing to share and learn. You must be prepared to go the extra mile, be a leader not a follower. Above all else, you must like young people and aspire to make them outstanding citizens.

We wish to appoint someone who will help us to continue to make a positive difference to the lives of young people in the borough. In return we promise a supportive and enjoyable working environment, and the resources needed to carry out the role to the highest standards.
