The Leigh Technology Academy


In September 2007, The Leigh City Technology College became The Leigh Technology Academy. In January 2008, we occupy new state of the art buildings which will allow us to continue to deliver our ground breaking model of education. The Leigh is one of the highest achieving state comprehensive schools in England and we want to become the best - a centre of excellence for education.

The Academy consists of four Colleges, each with its own Principal. We believe that these smaller schools within the Academy, develop deeper relationships and lay stronger foundations for learning which underpin outstanding achievement. The Academy offers three specialisms - Business and Enterprise, Sports and Technology. It has a national reputation for innovation, research and development.

The principles that have taken us on our exciting journey remain: namely, a passion for learning; a commitment to trying new ways to inspire and motivate young minds; and a dedication to helping each student fulfil their potential by encouraging them to explore all that life has to offer.


P align=left>The breadth of our curriculum means that students can explore an unparalleled range of subjects. Encouraging students to apply their knowledge, be resourceful and investigativeis a key aim in every subject area, as is the development of independent learning.

Our three Specialisms allow us to offer wider choices within subjects as well as develop the skills needed to become more enterprising and successful – communication, leadership, team work, risk taking and confidence.

The College operates a fast-track, two year, Key Stage 3 curriculum for all students, promoting active, project based learning. This allows for a richer and more flexible approach to students’ Key Stage 4 and Post-16 studies.

Our cutting edge facilities and IT rich environment play a big role in the learning process - digital projectors, interactive whiteboards, satellite TV and wireless laptops are used in every classroom. Our Learning Plazas allow students to access computers independently to support their learning.

We want every student to leave the Academy with confidence and a belief that learning is a positive, lifelong experience. We want every student, through involvement in a rich range of experiences and challenges, to develop high self esteem and to make a valuable contribution to society. We emphasise the many ways in which people learn and the pleasure and empowerment learning brings. A vast array of extension and enrichment activities, at home and abroad, help our students develop their passions, gain new experiences and further their understanding of themselves and the world. Students work with a variety of businesses on problem-solving days, tackling real life business issues and developing their understanding of ’the real world’.

A further way in which we expect students to become active citizens is through their involvement in school and year councils as well as participation in competitions and special events beyond the College.


Throughout their Post 16 studies, our students continue to develop their independent learning skills, ensuring that they are equipped for the future challenges of University and the workplace.

Our sixth form students represent an important role model for younger students within the Academy, and there are many opportunities to develop leadership skills and take responsibility for their own learning. The Leigh Technology Academy actively encourages our Post 16 students to learn within a disciplined environment, which contributes to confident and motivated progress.

Students are expected to wear appropriate dress for business and, thanks to our new facilities, will now be able to work on equipment more commonly found in industry than education, such as in our bespoke science laboratories, recording studio and TV studio. We also offer extensive support for their next step in life, whether it be university or a career.
