Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Edgar Wood Academy, a school committed to working with the Middleton and Heywood communities. 

Helping our students realise their potential lies at the heart of everything we do by adhering to our values of:

·      Resilience

·      Empathy

                    ·      Responsibility

I believe that the success of a school lies in fostering high quality relationships between pupils, staff and the wider community and adherence to our values helps strengthen these relationships each and every day.  

At Edgar Wood Academy, we work together to support every student to develop, both personally and academically. We aim to ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to improve the communities that they live in, to enrich the society that they are part of and to make a positive contribution. As part of our Edgar Wood Promise, we have a curriculum which aims to secure outstanding progress, develop students' powerful knowledge and cultural capital, as well as their aspirations to be the best versions of themselves.

We are proud to be part of Altus Education Partnership Trust. The development of the Trust stemmed from a commitment to raising aspirations and improving the life chances of young people throughout the borough of Rochdale.

In September 2022, students at Edgar Wood Academy were the first to experience our new building, and we are extremely lucky to benefit from its state-of-the-art facilities, designed to allow all students to flourish academically, culturally and artistically.

Our passion and commitment to ensuring our students' potential through high-quality teaching, in a safe and caring environment is key to the success of each and every student.
