Stockport Academy offers free education for 1,150 students (900 places for student aged 11-16 plus a Sixth Form for 250 students). Our current intake at Year 7 is 190. Every place is free of charge and open to students of all abililties. At Stockport Academy, we welcome students from all areas of Stockport and Greater Manchester and any child is eligible to apply for a place at our Academy.
The Academy admissions policy places emphasis upon family values and equality. Children with siblings at the academy are guaranteed a place, followed by other children based on distance between their home and the academy. There is no selection by either ability or aptitude.
The only students who would merit absolute priority are children in public care (looked after children), those with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) naming Stockport Academy and children for whom it is essential they be admitted because of special circumstances relating to medical and social needs.
Year 7 admissions are dealt with by Stockport MBC Admissions Team, you can find out further details about the admissions process and how to apply by visiting their website.
Our Year 6 Open Evening will take place on Wednesday 20th September 2017. You can also visit the Academy for a tour during school hours - if this is something of interest, please contact Mrs. Linda Duffy, PA to the Principal, on 0161 286 0330 to arrange an appointment. You are also welcome to attend any of our school events which are open to the public. Further details about events can be found in the Calendar of Events section of our website.
