Description of the school

This is a much larger than average school situated in an urban area of broadly average social and economic circumstances.

The proportion of pupils entitled to free school meals is low. About 15% of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and about 10% speak English as an additional language; both figures are below the national average. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those with a statement of special educational need, is also below average.

The school has received many awards including Silver Artsmark, Sports Active, Healthy Schools, Platinum Sing Up, Tameside Inclusion, Eco Flags and a teaching award for sustainable schools. ...In summer 2008 the building housing the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) was demolished following the discovery of severe subsidence. Since September the EYFS has been housed in temporary accommodation on the site of a neighbouring school.
