Our History

Our History

There has been a school on our site for more than 100 years. From Cromwell Secondary Modern for Girls at the time of World War I, to Cromwell Road School in the 1930s. More recently, in 1988, Wardley High School and Pendlebury High School merged to form The Swinton High School and then in 2011 our school became the first Converter Academy in Salford.

Our most recent step, in March 2018, has seen us join the Co-operative Academies Trust (CAT). CAT is a Multi Academy Trust made up of ten primary and secondary academies in the North of England, each of which is sponsored by The Co-op.

Our teachers and support staff have been proud to serve this community for the last 100 years and it is our immense privilege to be the ones currently serving our community and educating future generations.
