Here’s what people say about our school.

I’d like to give a brief message of thanks and appreciation for the delivery of school lessons recently.

Our children, Sophie and Thomas have been been in school over the recent weeks and after discussions that we have with them it is clear that considerable effort and hard work is being put in to ensure that the school remains open with lessons being delivered. I believe that adjustments have been made to classes, some lessons are being covered. Considering government guidance, pupil and staff absence this can not have been an easy task so we would like to offer our genuine thanks for ensuring that our children are still receiving high quality learning and appreciate all of the painstaking work that has been done to achieve this.

As parents we are very grateful the way school is supporting our young people. We are proud of all of you, the dedication our teachers how and give to these young people will set them up for life. They are learning lots of other skills and people skills they will need in the world around them. You are an excellent team.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team. Last night for Adam and I was absolutely incredible and I honestly believe without your support it just wouldn’t have been possible. Every single teacher told me that Adam is doing incredibly well and spoke with such care and compassion – it was just wonderful! I’m so proud of him. Very grateful to be a part of Unsworth Academy!

Year 10 Parent

I am very happy with all the revision classes that are available to my child. Great support for GCSE exams.

Year 11 Parent

I wanted to acknowledge what can only be described as an amazing parents evening for my daughter. She is making such stunning progress in all subjects. We recognise this is down to the work she puts in herself but after the recent parents’ evening we also realise what incredible members of staff you have. Each and every one was enthusiastic and certainly knowledgeable about the children they teach.

It was an absolute pleasure to visit the GCSE PE pupils. Their intrigue about gender inequality within sports culture was clear, and their energy to engage in the debates was excellent. I’d like to thank both the staff and pupils for the warm welcome and good luck with your studies going forward!

I attended your Open Morning with my daughter today. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your school and your students. The atmosphere was calm, respectful and purposeful; a real credit to you.

Myself and my husband would just like to thank all the staff that were involved in the Ski Trip last week. It is greatly appreciated that they gave their own time up and also took time away from their families to take the learners on this trip. Thank you all very much for all your time and effort in making the ski trip last week such a memorable experience for our son, Thomas. He had an amazing holiday, gained some new friends, gained lots of new experiences, and had lots of fun which has led to creating an extra special memory for him to reflect back on in years to come. We looked forward to seeing the daily Tweets that you took time out to write also. Thank you once again.

I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your staff and students on this year’s ski trip to Austria. I was the rep in charge of the group , and thoroughly enjoyed their company. The students’ behaviour was really good and Mr Peacock , the party leader, did an excellent job ensuring the students had a really good trip and were making good progress with their skiing, with great support from his team.

Thank you for the wonderful football tournament. All the children really enjoyed participating in the competition. As one of the local primary schools, we feel that these transition sessions between High School and Primary Schools are extremely valuable. We greatly appreciate the effort the PE department put into organising such an event to ensure that it was successful. Also my I take this opportunity to complement the exceptional behaviour of your pupils who helped out at the event, especially those who played a warm up game against our team.

We came to Year 8 Parents’ Evening and I was extremely impressed with all of the teachers and their passion for teaching and desire to encourage my daughter to maximise her potential.
