Welcome to Montgomery Academy

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am extremely proud to introduce myself as the headteacher of Montgomery Academy. It is my pleasure to work at a school with fantastic students and a brilliant, caring staff.

Montgomery has been serving it’s community for over 60 years and supported many local residents through the challenges of the pandemic.  We have a proud tradition of both sporting and academic success and we dominate the local sporting competitions.  Our standards of achievement have been improving year on year, including in 2023, and are built on high quality teaching and learning.

At Montgomery Academy we have a reading rich curriculum that blends traditional academic subjects with the vocational opportunities that Blackpool excels in such as travel, childcare, catering, enterprise and entertainment. Across their five years students study the full National Curriculum enriched with community-based opportunities to complement their academic education.  Excitingly, this year we have broadened even further the curriculum choices for our current Year 9 students considering their options.  We have established links with both Blackpool & Fylde and Myerscough Colleges offering a new range of courses to our students such as Construction, Motor Vehicle Maintenance, Hair & Beauty and Animal Studies.

We want all students within our Montgomery Family to be happy, confident young learners that get the best out of the opportunities that we provide. Therefore, we ask them all to be SMART in both their behaviour and attitudes.  SMART stands for Safe, Mature, Ambitious, Respectful and Thoughtful.

Montgomery’s good reputation continues to grow, though we are committed to improve the provision for our young people even further. OFSTED rated us ‘Good’ for Leadership & Management, Behaviour & Attitudes and Personal Development in February 2022.

What makes Montgomery special is the people that walk around it. In our Montgomery Family of students, parents and our superb team of staff we all work hard to  ‘Inspire Excellence Together’.

Stephen Careless
