Welcome to Stockport Academy.
Thank you for taking an interest in developing your career at our academy, which shortlisted to the final 8 of the TES Secondary School of the Year Award in 2017.
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, and we work with our partner schools to provide high-quality training for current staff and trainees. This affords 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.
