We have approximately 1300 students in Years 7 to 11 and offer a full academically inclusive curriculum with exceptionally high expectations over the knowledge, the skills and the experiences all of our students will gain during their time with us.

We have a wide and engaging curriculum with English, mathematics, science, humanities and modern foreign languages at its core. Alongside, welfare education, performing arts, expressive arts and physical education and community programmes, we also develop our students’ wider personal skills and help to equip them for a successful future in our changing world.

We have an exceptional £43 million building and as you would expect, we are able to offer one of the most stimulating learning environments in the North West of England, with cutting edge facilities in each department. Outstanding sports, art, drama and music facilities are available to all students and are regularly used by our community too.

I am very proud of all of them, and very proud to be part of the Ashton and Tameside communities. We are proud of the high academic and vocational standards our students achieve, but equally proud of the way in which they grow up to be responsible, hardworking and healthy adults who contribute fully to their community.
