Welcome to E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy


It is a great pleasure to welcome you to E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy at such an exciting and innovative time in the academy’s history.


In September 2019, we moved into a brand new, state of the art, learning complex to ensure we provide the very best outcomes for all our children. Our biggest priority is to ensure that through the best quality of education, outstanding teaching we provide the very best educational experiences and outcomes for all our students allowing everyone access to the curriculum and entitlements that they require in order to succeed in their chosen career pathways.


At E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy we fully embrace our core values of

Honesty • Excellence • Aspiration

and believe that “Together we will achieve Excellence” with every child fulfilling their potential.


We are proud of our fully inclusive and caring ethos where we set high standards and expectations for all stakeholders whilst preserving the E-ACT values of:


  • Thinking Big
  • Embracing Team Spirit
  • Doing the right thing


Through ‘Opening doors and Opening minds’ we foster and encourage ambition and aspiration for all of our students unlocking barriers to learning and providing a pathway for success for all.

Safeguarding runs through the veins of the academy and our aim is for all our students to be happy, supported and challenged in a safe, high quality-learning environment by:


  • Developing well-rounded individuals who can demonstrate resilience, determination and strength of character.
  • Providing enrichment and increased opportunities to equip our learners with life long, employability skills.
  • Developing an aspirational academy to raise standards and expectations for all students to be the very best they can be.


Our academic standards continue to improve year on year and, at an exciting time for the academy during this transitional phase, our aspirational goal is that E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy will become a hub of excellence in the local and wider community. This goal will be supported and encouraged through the improvements of the facilities that are available in our new build, as well as through the continuous hard work and dedication that is exhibited in the academy by our staff.

I look forward to all stakeholders being involved in developing the future of the academy and to share in our development and progress. With collaboration, determination and a positive ethos, I believe that we can ensure that E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy will become a beacon of Educational Excellence for all.

We would love to invite you to experience the academy for yourself. In the meantime, please do get in touch if you have any questions or want to register for a visit.

Andrea Atkinson, Headteacher
