Headteacher’s Welcome

I am incredibly proud to lead a good school which is home to so many fantastic young people. Our staff are driven by the belief that every child should go to a great school and we believe that every child can become a great learner through politeness, hard work and honesty.

We aim to ensure that all our young people become great learners by providing an excellent education in an environment that is warm, friendly and caring. We believe that success should be measured by both academic progress and by one’s contribution to our community and wider society. The willingness and ability to learn, to lead, to participate and to serve are what enable a life to be both well-lived and worthwhile. As well as seeking to secure good academic progress for our learners, our purpose is to develop strong character traits in our students during their five years with us. Working in the local community and within a strong partnership of local primary schools, Droylsden Academy aims to raise aspirations, expectations and achievement for all students and seeks to make a major contribution to the development of educational excellence in Tameside.

Life at secondary school should be an exciting, opportunity – filled adventure where our students meet new people, learn new skills and develop and grow in character. We are here to help, support and guide our students as they become great learners, celebrating their academic and personal successes with them along the way.

We do hope that you will be inspired by the superb learning environment we have at Droylsden Academy. Ours is a good school on a journey to excellence and it is a school with a growing reputation. It is a place which staff are proud to work and a school where our students are proud to belong. We look forward to working alongside you and your child in the coming years and beyond so that we can celebrate success with you.

Yours faithfully

Mr P Wilson
