Altus Education Partnership

The Altus Education Partnership is a Multi Academy Trust and was established in April 2017 by the governing body of Rochdale Sixth Form College, an outstanding A level provider established in 2010. The college was awarded outstanding status by Ofsted in 2013, and again in 2022, and has developed a national reputation for excellence, having been used in Ofsted case studies for sharing best practice.

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 2019 the Trust was successful in its application to open a new free school, the Edgar Wood Academy, which serves the local community in Middleton and Heywood. In 2022, Kingsway Park High School, who are rated by Ofsted as a 'Good' school, joined the Trust. Kingsway Park offers outstanding facilities for learning and is an organisation that brings significant benefit to the wider community. 2023 brought the first primary school, Bamford Academy, to the Trust. Bamford Academy were rated as a 'Good' school in 2023 by Ofsted and it was noted that the students flourish by being part of a positive, happy, caring and safe community. 

We are committed to supporting all children in their academies to lead happy and fulfilling lives and make positive differences to their communities and society.
