Welcome to Great Academy Ashton

GAA is genuinely a GREAT school filled with professional, experienced and dedicated staff. 

Our staff are supported and trained to be the best they possibly can be for our students and to support each other.  We have many career opportunities for new and existing staff with extensive CPD programmes.  We are always pleased to receive CVs and other details from people interested in working with us.

We are located just outside the great global city of Manchester, where we work closely with our partner schools, with local and national businesses, and a vast range of community groups.  All staff are encouraged to join their professional body groups, from The Chartered College of Teaching to the Mathematical Association.  Whichever professional body is suitable for your role, we will fund your membership so that you gain the best, most up to date, professional knowledge. 

If you wish to be a part of a values based, community focussed, ethically led organisation, we want to hear from you!

Staff CPD

Having an appetite for learning is key to a successful life. The best staff understand that they don’t have all the answers but are willing to find out more and appreciate that there is no ceiling on learning. At Great Academy Ashton, we invest in our staff and encourage life-long learning. We fully fund staff CPD, including memberships to professional bodies, subject networks and much more.


We know that, to achieve our vision, it is our people who will make the big difference.

In order to attract the strongest, we offer a competitive reward and benefits package.
