"The care, guidance and support provided by staff are outstanding”

Welcome to Cromwell High School


Please note that Cromwell High School is currently operating from the Inspire Academy, Mossley Road, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 9RU due to a fire at our usual site. Our main telephone number and email remain the same. See News menu above for further information & updates.

Cromwell High School offers huge thanks to everyone in our community and the wider educational community for their fantastic support in helping us to get back on our feet so quickly after the fire.  In particular; The emergency services, Inspire Academy, Tameside Council, Carillion & Astley Sports College. We are pleased to announce that local company, Jamieson Contracting, have won the contract and are now underway in rebuilding the damaged section of our school to an improved design to maximise use of space. 

We are a Specialist Support School for pupils with:

  • ASC- Autistic Spectrum Condition (with learning difficulties)
  • PMLD- Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
  • SLD- Severe Learning Difficulties
  • MLD- Moderate Learning Difficulties (with additional complexity resulting in significant difficulties in learning)

Cromwell High School makes 3 fundamental commitments for the education of our pupils. That they will learn:

  • as much about the wider world as possible- learning to respond to the widest sensory environments and connecting their everyday experiences with the wider world that produces them- for example learning/experiencing that the water from the tap falls as rain, collects in the reservoir is cleaned and travels through pipes.
  • to be as successful in the world as possible- especially in the functional skills of communication, understanding organisation, ability to focus on learning, ability to work with other people.
  • to grow as caring, confident and responsible citizens.
