We are delighted that the OfSTED inspection team who visited in January recognised Glossopdale has improved since the last inspection and confirmed the upward trend.
The College has achieved its best GCSE results again in 2012.
58% achieved 5A*-C En & Ma GCSE grades up 20% over 4 years.
87% achieved 5A*-C GCSE Grades up 37% over 4 years.
We are a happy and flourishing learning community with a passion for excellence. We are particularly proud of our Performing Arts status and the impact this has across the whole College and the community of the Glossop area.
We are committed to our comprehensive values. Our expectations are high because we care about our students. We believe that every young person is special, with unique talents, skills and qualities that should be recognised and nurtured. Our ambition is to build a community of successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens where all students, regardless of age, ability, or background, are engaged, challenged, inspired and supported in their learning. Our core purpose is to ensure that students of all abilities and backgrounds fly high and have high aspirations.
Glossopdale Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We are extremely proud of our school and believe that we provide a flourishing and exciting place of learning for the Glossop community. Please take a look round our website to find out more.
