Discovery Academy in Hattersley, Hyde opened as an Academy within our Trust on 1st September 2016.

The Academy is a one form entry newly established school in a brand new building in the heart of the community.  It is a targeted basic need school where the need was established by the local authority to manage an increase in pupil numbers locally and we worked with the local authority in the development and set up of the school. 


It is their mission to provide an educational journey and experience that is second to none, to be a beacon in their community and to leave their children and families with the lasting impact of a fulfilled potential and a lifelong love of learning. In providing excellent educational services they aim to become the school of choice in their local area and provide a place where children can thrive educationally and personally day after day.

They believe in aspiration for all. This means nurturing, supporting and developing every aspect of every single child in their care. They want to create a world where the sky is the limit for all of their pupils; building pathways for all and focusing on personal and academic success and eventually progress to successful employment.

They have a wonderfully supportive ethos at Discovery Academy which ensures that their pupils are well behaved, hardworking, friendly and kind. All characteristics that they believe make for happy and successful children. Their values are:

  • Discovering– Seeking opportunities to expand knowledge and experience;
  • Inspiring – Encouraging all to be as creative and motivating as possible;
  • Caring – Providing support and guidance for the whole school community;
  • Improving – Striving to better ourselves at all times; and
  • Achieving – Teaching to attain aspirational targets.

We are delighted to confirm that at the last Ofsted Inspection in June 2019 Discovery Academy was rated Good across all areas. Please click here to read a copy of our Ofsted report.
