Ofsted success for Unsworth Academy


Our Bury secondary school has been judged as ‘good’ in all areas following a two-day Ofsted inspection.

Unsworth Academy received the fantastic rating in their first inspection as an academy, after joining the Shaw Education Trust in 2017.

Principal Sue Armstrong said: “This result has been achieved because we, as a community, believe that nothing is impossible.

“We are proud that the people of Unsworth now have an officially ’Good’ secondary school at the heart of their community.”

With the support of parents/carers, students have responded brilliantly to the school’s high expectations of progress, behaviour and attendance.

Further adding to this, the tremendous hard work of the school’s dedicated staff members, as well as the challenge and support provided by the Academy Council and Trust, has helped form the school’s improved rating.

Shaw Education Trust’s CEO, Jo Morgan, commented: “We are absolutely delighted that the exceptional progress Unsworth Academy, its leaders, staff, and students, have made is celebrated in this Ofsted report.

“This is the first stage of their remarkable journey and with the continued support of the Trust, will relentlessly drive forward to even greater heights.”

Following the fantastic inspection result, the school is determined to become ‘outstanding’ and a beacon of excellence in all areas.

Mrs Armstrong concluded: “Our commitment to secure the best possible outcomes and life chances for all our learners is stronger than ever; our incredible partnership with the Shaw Education Trust will ensure excellence is our only acceptable standard.”
