Eaton Bank Academy (formerly Eaton Bank School) is a secondary school with academy status located in the town of Congleton in Cheshire, England.[1]

The school was formed in 2000 after the reduction of the area's three schools to two larger schools (the previous schools being Dane Valley High School, Heathfield High School and Westlands High School). Eaton Bank Academy currently has around 1,100 pupils on roll. The school is also a designated Specialist Maths and Computing and Sixth Form College.

In an Ofsted inspection in 2013 the report classified the school as 'Requires Improvement'.[2]

In May 2013, the Academy was inspected by Ofsted and it was stated that it "Requires Improvement", gaining a grade 3 overall.

Eaton Bank Academy is also the only secondary school in Congleton to be included in the "Top 500 Secondary Schools in the United Kingdom" and also has a high exam pass rate.

Eaton Bank supports the local "Schools for Gambia" charity, and is currently supporting a school in the Gambia. The school and organises regular visits for its sixth form students to the school in the Gambia.
