About us

Harrop Fold – Moving Onwards and Upwards

We’re beginning a new era at Harrop Fold.

Having been one of the most talked about schools in the country, we’re returning to what we do best:

• being an excellent, local school serving one of the most disadvantaged communities in the country;
• putting teaching and learning first;
• focusing on our students and how we can best prepare them for successful, happy adult lives; and
• Developing their full potential with a focus on delivering education with character.

We’re not hiding the fact that we currently face a number of educational challenges. But rather than face these alone, we have the support of United Learning and its cluster of schools in the North West working alongside us.

And we have the common-sense ambition needed to address our current challenges head on.

We already have a cadre of excellent, committed, loyal and hard-working staff. And we have opportunities for more to join us. We’re looking for teachers who value working in a school where you can make a genuine difference on a daily basis. Who have the ideas, energy and expertise to inspire young people of all abilities. And who want to work as part of a team where everyone’s input is appreciated and we responsibility is shared for future success.

Through United Learning we have access to excellent CPD for staff, joint-working across schools and a series of initiatives and opportunities that no standalone school could ever provide on its own.
So if you are ambitious for the children you support and want to work in a school where what you think and do is welcomed and appreciated, please get in touch.
