The appalling attack at the Manchester Arena last night is currently being treated as a suspected terrorist incident. All our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones or been injured or traumatised. The police, hospitals, Council and emergency services are doing all they can to support them. As a Borough we will remain strong and it is more important than ever that our communities continue to support each other.
Our school leadership team will continue to ensure the safety of our children and security of our school building, and will remain vigilant at all times.
We appreciate these terrible events will be distressing your children and the school community. We will remain open as usual and we appreciate your support in keeping the day as calm and normal as possible for the children. We have access to Counselling and support services should anybody require this.
As we receive further information from Wigan Council, we will update parents/guardians via our website.
Rose Bridge Academy is a mixed 11-16 comprehensive school, serving our local community, where every student is valued and treated as an individual. We are proud of our caring, inclusive ethos where we set high standards and expectations and we encourage and support our students to achieve their very best. Students themselves developed our values of Respect, Believe and Achieve, and these underpin everything that we do. The Academy is well resourced with excellent facilities.
Visitors are always welcome to make an appointment to visit the Academy and see what we have to offer, talk to our staff and students and see us in action. We look forward to welcoming you.
At Rose Bridge Academy our vision is to improve outcomes for all and for every student to enjoy and succeed in the academy, regardless of their starting point or background.

Whole School Attendance:
I won the Mayor for a Day competition by answering a simple question: “The legal voting age should be changed from 18 to 16 because...” with the answer: “16 and 17 year olds are just as passionate about important issues as adults can be and some of these issues can directly affect young people.” As a result, I spent a day with the Mayor. Miss Heaton and I were picked up from in the mayor's car, and we started the day at an eco-schools conference, where schools and organizations spoke about what they were doing to help the environment; we then had afternoon tea at the Mayor's parlour, after which we visited a primary school to deliver a presentation on what they needed to know about the Mayor. We were then taken back to school at the end of the day. It was a very good day and I highly recommend entering the competition next time to anyone into that sort of thing.
