Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Irlam and Cadishead Academy, a £26 million state-of-the-art secondary school.

Our community offers an environment where students’ behaviour is impeccable; they treat each other and staff with real respect, have a genuine enjoyment of school and enjoy their learning. Irlam and Cadishead Academy has a relentless drive and determination to ensure the best possible education for students in our care, and that all our students Aspire, Work Hard and Achieve.

Our passion for learning and high expectations drive a culture of aspiration and ambition throughout the school. With our broad curriculum we offer students the opportunity to perform to the best of their ability and we support them to become caring and confident citizens of tomorrow. Through the cultivation of strong links with universities, local colleges, businesses and community groups we prepare our students for working life in the modern world.

The Man on the Bench is back!

Academy students and staff support alumnus' sculpture restoration

Aiden Lucas 0 266

Our beloved Man on the Bench sculpture has now arrived back home at Irlam Station. He has been away for some time being cast in bronze following the successful fundraising campaign to get him back on his feet, thanks to the support of our academy students and staff working in partnership with the Hamilton Davies Trust and our wider Irlam and Cadishead community.

 

Keeping your child safe and happy is just as important to us as academic achievement.
