Alder Community High School is an oversubscribed, 11-16, mixed comprehensive school and is situated in Gee Cross, Hyde within Tameside to the east of Manchester and is close to the borders with Stockport and the Peak District. We can offer excellent facilities, a friendly and supportive environment and opportunities for professional development.

Our school is moving from strength to strength. Examination results have improved dramatically over the last few years and this year 80% of our students achieved a grade 4 or above in English; 73% achieved a grade 4 or above in both English and maths. Progress in English and Mathematics is consistently above national averages. Our Progress 8 figure in 2016 was above the national average, in the top 30% of schools nationally. Our NEET figures are virtually zero this year. In June 2014 Ofsted judged us to be a ‘Good’ school.

Applications from both experienced teachers and NQTs are welcome.
