There has also been extensive refurbishing of classrooms, learning spaces and support units. Pupils can benefit from excellent provisions for learning, including state of the art IT resources with access to modern facilities.
The school is heavily over oversubscribed and currently serves a cohort of just over 1000 pupils aged 11-16, and is located in Salford. The school also has an internal inclusion unit, in which students who regularly display challenging behaviour can be supported by a pastoral care team and able to learn at the same pace as their peers. Salford can be accessed via the M60/A580 (East Lancashire Road) and there are numerous public transport links readily available from the surrounding areas; Bury, Bolton and Wigan.
"We currently have a large pastoral team with qualified youth work specialists and Learning Mentors, but would like to add another from September to provide additional support to a number of key students.
