Below are some comments we've received from parents, local businesses and members of the community about our school and its students:
"It was a joy to have so many enthusiastic and polite students from Stockport Academy and you made a valuable contribution to the event. Your students conducted themselves well and are a credit to their school.”
- Dr Jon Shiach, Manchester Metropolitan University
"Many of the cadets are students at the academy and their exemplary behaviour and team spirit is a constant source of pride to me as a leader. Wherever we go as a group we are complimented by 'amazed' senior police officers. A Duke of Edinburgh instructor spoke to our group at the end of their expedition and said ‘you are an amazing group, we have never had such a well behaved unit that left their campsite spotless, this has never happened before’."
- Richard Fox, Stockport East Neighbourhood Policing Team
“Your students were a credit to your school and a number of the delegates expressed that their favourite part of the day was meeting your business leaders. Please pass on my thanks to them … this was a daunting task but one that they handled extremely well. The presentation they gave was fantastic and it was invaluable for the business delegates (and BITC) to hear what really matters to them. They are fantastic ambassadors for Business Class and for Stockport Academy.”
- Business In The Community
"The students in Year 8 were a credit to themselves as well as the school and it was good to see all abilities rewarded in our closing session."
- Prison Me No Way
"I just wanted to say thank you for organising your steel band playing at our conference last week. They were brilliant and we were really grateful to be able to showcase such excellent pupil talent from a United Learning school."
- United Learning
"I would like to say thank you to your students for arranging our residents' Christmas Party, which our staff and residents thoroughly enjoyed. They thought the students were really lovely, friendly and contributed to a really nice afternoon."
- Borough Care, Stockport
"The students were a credit to their school in terms of behaviour and engagement. It would be a pleasure to come back to Stockport Academy in the near future."
- Dogs Trust North West
"Just wanted to thank you for all your help, assistance and no doubt patience over the weekend (dance residential trip). Our daughter had a great time and she hasn't stopped talking about it. Looking forward to the dance show now - you bring out the best in our daughter."
- Year 7 Parent
"I wanted to take the opportunity to thank your staff for the parents evening tonight and to thank you all for your continued support with my son. You have my sincere gratitude."
- Year 11 Parent
"Our choice to send our son to the academy was the correct choice. We feel so much more confident knowing we can speak to staff and our son feels completely supported both academically and personally. He feels safe and secure and that he belongs here. Thank you so much."
"Our daughter has grown in confidence and progressed immensely in such a short space of time due to the excellent running and teaching in your school. We are so pleased she is settled and enjoying Stockport Academy."
"Communication with the school is excellent and the Principal is always approachable. I'm so pleased with the school and all of my son's teachers. Thank you."
-Year 7 Parent
“Stockport Academy is the most amazing school in the way it is so focussed on the students – not only in educating its students but safeguarding its students … it’s going to be seen as a beacon of what we want a school to be, a place for children to be educated and to give them the opportunities to go on in life, a place where they can feel safe and learn to be responsible citizens and to care for other people.”
- Ann Coffey MP
"The facilities here are second to none, and I’d advise anybody that can come to this school to come to this school. I look forward to seeing the results of this academy over the years, because it’s going to be one of the stars of Stockport."
- Cllr Kevin Hogg, Former Mayor of Stockport
"The support and guidance you give to young carers is of the highest quality."
- Signpost Stockport Young Carers
"My son has had a brilliant first week at high school. I have had no trouble getting him out of bed and out of the door! As a family we are really looking forward to supporting the academy with our son's education."
"Over the last few years, we have been delighted to grow in friendship with the teachers and students at Stockport Academy. The students visit us at our Easter and Christmas parties, singing wonderful songs and handing out beautiful hampers. We have also been invited to afternoon tea, with songs from the choir and music from some very talented musicians. The games of bingo always go down well!
"The ladies and gentlemen from Socially Yours love the way the students chat with them and were very moved in the Poppy Drop on Remembrance Day service at the Academy. We look forward to new adventures and new friendships!"
-Socially Yours Charity Group, Edgeley
