Who are we?

Montgomery Academy, a rapidly improving school with good leadership, determined to deliver the highest quality education.

Montgomery Academy is situated in Bispham, north Blackpool. We are proud of our reputation for securing both high quality academic achievement and providing the best possible learning opportunities and support for our students. These high standards are built upon foundations of mutual respect, collective values and the firm belief that learning counts and people really matter. The school is energetic, inclusive and continually seeking ways to improve the opportunities as well as draw the best talents, expertise and experience for students and staff alike. 

The Academy’s sponsor is FCAT, the Fylde Coast Academy Trust, a growing and developing Multi Academy Trust which is committed to “promoting excellence in teaching, learning and leadership”. You would be joining the ‘family of schools’ within FCAT which will provide outstanding opportunities for future professional growth and potential promotion. Furthermore, the Academy is also part of the Fylde Coast Teaching School which delivers high quality courses on teaching and leadership as well as the opportunity for colleagues to network and share good practice to improve opportunities for young people across the region. We are determined to build upon this further and are looking to appoint like-minded professionals to join us on our journey of continuous improvement.

On Thursday, May 5th, 2016 the most recent Ofsted report was published on the Ofsted website and also the Academy website. Montgomery is no longer in Special Measures and is described by the Inspectors as ‘transformed’. Leadership and management are graded good and personal development and welfare are also graded good. Across all other areas of activity and provision Ofsted report rapid and significant improvements. It is clearly our intention to ensure that the next visit from an Ofsted Team grades the school as definitively good. So you would be joining a much improved school with a positive and forward looking agenda. We are all optimistic about the future for the school.
