Welcome to Tytherington School


We are a successful, ambitious and high-performing school at the heart of the local community. At Tytherington School, we pride ourselves on our high standards which enables us to provide first-class learning experiences for all students.

As Headteacher, and a parent myself, I make no apology for having a very simple and uncomplicated view of what makes an exceptional school. At Tytherington School we have a calm and supportive environment which is characterised by respectful relationships between the teachers and students. There is a very clear focus on delivering high academic standards for all students. We encourage all students to strive to fulfil their potential wherever their interests or talents may lie.

Excellent teaching and learning is at the core of our approach. We provide all our students with a forward looking and rich curriculum which allows them to develop the skills and knowledge required to grasp any opportunities the future may present. Our ethos encourages students to be articulate, resilient, courageous, curious and have the confidence to stand up for what they believe in.

We are very proud of our strong culture of academic success at key stages 4 and 5. We offer a wide range of courses which enable all students to thrive.

Tytherington is a safe and happy school where there is a sense of pride amongst students. If you want to know more about us please arrange a visit, we would love to see you.
