We are in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress!

Essa Academy is celebrating its fantastic Progress 8 data for 2019. Following the data release from the Department of Education, it is now in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.

Progress measures highlight how much progress students have made on their five-year journey at secondary school. The partnership between students, staff, parents, carers and Bolton Council means our students achieve better than their peers nationally. These results are incredible and I am very, very proud.
