Werneth School is a coeducational secondary school located in Bredbury near Stockport, Greater Manchester. The school received very good reports in Spring 2007 from Ofsted. The original school buildings came into use in 1941, and several additions and extensions have been added over the years. Specialist provision is available for all subjects. There are extensive playing fields, an all-weather pitch, two gymnasia, a Sports Hall, good laboratory accommodation, extensive Technology workshops, computing facilities, modern maths facilities and a well stocked School Library and Resource Centre.

The school won the National Literacy Trust's 2006/2007 Reading Connects School of the Year Competition.[2] The school's librarian, Nikki Heath, was awarded the School Librarian of the Year Award by the School Library Association in May 2008.[3]

Werneth and their students have a rivalry with the school opposite, Harrytown Catholic High School. And so, many sporting events such as football and rugby have been affected by the rivalry.
