Our Ethos

Stockport Academy is an 11-16 school where everyone works together in relation to our basic principles; aspiring to be the best, respecting each other and being a positive influence on our communities. Our Mission Statement is 'Creating Opportunity For Success'.

We are proud members of our local, national and global community, constantly striving to be the best and bringing out the best in everyone. Powerful knowledge, place in society, personal skill-set and character are considered and endorsed in line with the Academy values across the curriculum. 

Our Future Me assessment tool provides a professional framework against which students can self-assess and plan their personal development during their time at school as they broaden and enrich their own lives and the lives of others.
