Thank you for your interest in the Great Academy Ashton. Our aim is to include the very best of traditional education alongside the innovation and change needed to prepare our young people for successful careers and global citizenship.
With the academy providing first-class facilities, alongside teaching and support of the highest standard, will give our young people the chance to achieve more than they thought possible. Each day I plan to encourage them to develop personal qualities – of self-discipline, care, respect and hard work. In return, they will enjoy the challenge of realising their potential.
The Academy is different. My favourite proverb is from Africa – it takes a whole village to raise a child – and this theme of partnership characterises and the educational experience we offer. As a parent myself, I know selecting the right school for your children is an important and often difficult decision. Look through our prospectus and student handbook; talk to us about your hopes for your child. You’ll find we have so much in common.
Mrs J Langley – Principal, Great Academy Ashton
