Thank you for visiting Spring Brook Academy Upper’s website.


Spring Brook Academy is a holistic and nurturing provision that succeeds in re-engaging the most vulnerable and disillusioned, misunderstood learners across Oldham, Tameside and Manchester.

With an innovative curriculum to reignite interest in each pupil, Spring Brook Academy embraces a raft of initiatives through a targeted approach to ensure every student makes excellent progress which is appropriate to their specific needs.

Spring Brook’s holistic and therapeutic approach is at the heart of everything we do. We focus on developing relationships between all staff and all students through an ethos of mutual respect and understanding.

“Pupils’ personal development and welfare is strong. From often very low starting points, pupils make good progress. This is because they receive full support, guidance and excellent care from the dedicated staff team.”

I feel very privileged to be able to lead this school and to work with such a committed and dedicated staff team.

“The school supports the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of pupils very well. Pupils have widened their cultural experiences through residential trips, including trips to Paris, and through other on-site activities.”

Everything we do here, we do in the best interests of our students who have a diverse range of needs. It is a total pleasure to be able to advocate and educate our students.
