Welcome to the Altus Education Partnership. Our central purpose is to help all our students across all our schools and colleges to realise their academic potential. We believe every young person can succeed and we devote ourselves to improving student achievement through high-quality teaching and student support. Through a culture of mutual respect, positive behaviour and high standards, we aim to inspire and engage all pupils, regardless of prior attainment or social background. Through a thriving family of Altus schools and colleges, we are committed to not only building student aspirations and futures, but also to regenerating communities.

The Altus Education Partnership is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and was established in April 2017 by the governing body of Rochdale Sixth Form College, an outstanding A level provider established in 2010. The college was awarded outstanding status by Ofsted in 2013 and has developed a national reputation for excellence, having been used in Ofsted case studies for sharing best practice. The development of the Trust stemmed from a commitment to raising aspirations and improving the life chances of young people throughout the borough of Rochdale. In 2019 the Trust was successful in its application to open a new free school, the Edgar Wood Academy, which will serve the local community in Middleton and Heywood.

We are committed to supporting all children in their academies to progress to a successful career, life and employment path of their choice.

Our Vision

To create and successfully run a family of inclusive academies from early years to sixth form that enables all students, regardless of background, to progress to an aspirational career, a fulfilling life and make a positive contribution to their local community.
