"To create and successfully run a family of inclusive academies from early years to sixth form that enables all students, regardless of background, to progress to an aspirational career, a fulfilling life and make a positive contribution to their local community."

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 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 will serve the local community in Middleton and Heywood.

We are committed to supporting all children in their academies to progress to a successful career, life and employment path of their choice.

All our academies will share a collective identity as providers of the highest quality teaching with high expectations of learners, coupled with effective assessment and intervention. Young people in our academies will engage with opportunities to develop their own skills and aptitudes to support their progression, while making valuable contributions to their communities. Leaders and teachers will take a collaborative approach, sharing best practice at a local, regional and national level, to continuously improve the performance and outcomes of all academies in the Trust.

If you would like to join our family of schools, please contact us.
