At Droylsden Academy we aim to engage students in rich, varied and; empowering learning experiences which allow them to make outstanding progress, to enjoy their learning and to relish the challenges it presents. We aim to equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to have access to a broad range of opportunities when they leave at the end of Year 11. Through lessons and the many other opportunities for learning offered at Droylsden Academy, we help and guide our students to become confident, articulate young people who are ready for life and work in the 21st century.
