We are a convertor academy, opening in November 2012 as a founder school of the SS Simon & Jude Academy Trust T/A Vantage Academy Trust. We are proud to be a National Support School, with our staff including a National Leader of Education and Specialist Leaders of Education.

Our Personal Learning Goals

As a school community, we believe that everyone has the right to succeed, the right to be happy, the right to be who they are and the right to feel valued.

At SSSJ there are 8 key attributes which are embedded in all aspects of daily life in school in order to prepare our children for their future: resilience, adaptability, co-operation, communication, morality, enquiry, thoughtfulness and respect. More information on each of the Personal Goals can be found in the Parent Leaflet which is in the curriculum section of the website - 'Parents Guide to the IPC'.


Should you wish to see a copy of our Admissions Policy please see our Policies page.

You can find out more about school admissions for 2017/18 from the Bolton LA website.
