This new three-storey secondary and sixth-form free school, completed in 2020, provides general teaching facilities as well as science labs, a performance hall with a connecting drama studio, a learning resource centre and a dedicated sixth form centre on the top floor.

A new four-court sports hall and associated changing facilities, connected to the main school building, were also included in the design and provide shared sports facilities for the local community.

After accommodating our first cohorts of students in temporary buildings we were delighted to move onto our new school site. The ethos of all Laurus Trust schools is to provide an excellent all-round education for students and our surroundings are fundamental to this.

At Laurus Ryecroft we are excited to provide young people in Tameside with not only exceptional teaching but also brand new, state-of-the-art facilities in which to learn, all of which helps them to achieve academically and to open the door to the future of their choice.
