Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting and significant event in the life of a child. Secondary school is a time for students to build on the foundations of learning and gain the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need to move on successfully. When they start secondary school they are expected to cope with a whole variety of new experiences and changes. It is also an opportunity to develop positive qualities and characteristics that will prepare them for life in today’s world.
Within our calm and supportive school environment, our aim at Irlam and Cadishead Academy (ICA) is to provide an education with character - one that inspires, excites and challenges students so that they leave us fully prepared for a happy and successful adult life.
