Stockport Academy is a non-selective co-educational school within the English Academy programme, located in Cheadle Heath, Stockport, Greater Manchester. It caters for children aged 11–16 and has approximately 869 pupils on roll. It was rated a good school with outstanding features in the 2015 Ofsted report.

The school opened officially in September 2007 as a replacement of Avondale High School, which later moved into a new building in 2008, which was constructed on the same site by Bowmer & Kirkland,[1] the school run by academy organisation United Learning,[2] formerly the United Church Schools Trust.[3] which opened the academy after Avondale was to be shut down. It is operated on a non-denominational basis, but followed the Christian, specifically Church of England, ethos of its parent organisation.[4]

In March 2015, Ofsted recognized Stockport Academy as a Good school, with Outstanding features.[5] Highlights of the report included recognition that the behavior of students is "impeccable" and students have "total confidence that they are well cared for".
