Welcome to Stockport Academy.
Thank you for taking an interest in developing your career at our academy, which was named the most improved school in Stockport in 2015 by the Department for Education and in the Good Schools Guide.
Having led the academy since 2012, I am confident that we are able to offer a vibrant and welcoming learning community for any staff member joining us.
We have an aspirational culture at the academy that encourages everyone – students and staff alike – to achieve their best. Underpinned by our values of belief, aspiration, achievement and respect, the academy has successfully been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
In their most recent report, Ofsted praised a number of key strengths such as students’ impeccable behaviour, their ‘genuine enjoyment’ of school and their total confidence in the academy’s care and support. Likewise, inspectors were impressed by the relentless drive and determination of staff across the school to ensure the best possible education for students.
As a part of United Learning, our academy benefits from shared resources, experiences, working practices and CPD opportunities that are second to none. We are delighted to have been named as the Group’s United Teaching centre for the North from September 2016, when we will be working with our partner schools to provide high-quality training for current staff and trainees. This will afford further opportunities for staff to provide a vital contribution in our pursuit to deliver the highest standards of educational excellence.
We are a diverse, tolerant and welcoming academy which continues to be an oversubscribed school of choice for local families. I would encourage you to visit us yourself to experience first-hand what Stockport Academy offers its staff and students.
