In September 2009 Droylsden Academy replaced Droylsden School, Mathematics and Computing College for Girls and Littlemoss High School for Boys with a new co-educational Academy on the Droylsden School site. In January 2012 the Academy moved into the new state of the art building which has places for 1,200 students.
Tameside College is the sponsor and works in partnership to raise levels of attainment and aspirations of all students. As sponsor, Tameside College is very well placed to create a unique institution characterised by high achievement and success. The College has a national reputation and a solid track record of partnership working with employers, universities and local schools.
The Ashton Regeneration and Community Strategies highlighted the need for an Academy in Droylsden. The Sponsor is committed to leading a process of educational transformation which will support and contribute to the regeneration of the local area. The Sponsor recognises the urgent need to retain young people in education and training post-16 and to respond to the national government agenda by reducing the number of NEETs in Droylsden and improving access to higher education generally.
The benefits that Tameside College will bring are immense, adding their expertise and ideas as well as opening up life-enhancing opportunities to all in Droylsden. An additional encouraging factor is the rapid growth of employment opportunities in the local area, as the East Manchester corridor begins to benefit from significant inward investment, relocation of businesses and numerous regeneration initiatives.
Droylsden Academy is an outstanding facility for learning and a significant community landmark providing a range of services to local people and promoting the regeneration of the Droylsden community. It is a world-class building with presence. It is airy, spacious and a daily inspiration to all users and visitors alike. The Academy will be highly regarded for its cutting edge provision and known locally, nationally and internationally for the excellence of the all-round education it provides. It will offer the young people of Droylsden real and tangible opportunities to follow learning routes that will genuinely transform their lives. It will, in every case, deliver the outcomes of Every Child Matters and will extend the outcomes so that in Droylsden Academy Every Person Matters and everyone’s contribution is valued equally.
The key to the Academy's success will be the development of a shared vision, effective and transformational leadership and management, robust partnership arrangements, innovative and creative teaching, dynamic curriculum and assessment methods, first class buildings and facilities, and the freedom to operate within an agreed framework as part of the Tameside Campus.
