Welcome to Great Academy Ashton – a very special place indeed. The academy is the embodiment of our sponsor’s commitment to providing the very best start in life for all of our young people.
GAA is a non-selective academy and wholly inclusive in ethos. Partners include The Manchester United Foundation, Sea Cadets, local schools and businesses, and Tameside Council; together we make sure that GAA students have an unrivalled set of opportunities to broaden their experience and fulfil their ambitions.
GAA have an exceptional £43 million building and as you would expect, are able to offer one of the most stimulating learning environments in the North West of England, with cutting edge facilities in each department. Outstanding sports, art, drama and music facilities are available to all students and are regularly used by our community too.
Principal, Mrs J Langley, says "GAA prepares students for their futures by educating minds and developing character. Our students are Genuine, Respectful, Excellent and Achieve Together. I am very proud of all of them, and very proud to be part of the Ashton and Tameside communities."
