The Elton High School is a mixed secondary school located on Walshaw Road to the north-west of Bury town centre in Greater Manchester.

The Elton High School has been recognised as "Good" school with "Outstanding" features by Ofsted following inspection in 2009. The English Department was inspected in November 2010 and it was found that the overall effectiveness of English within the school was "Outstanding".[1] The school was recently graded "requires improvement" in March 2015 following a recent Ofsted.[2] inspection in February 2015. The Elton High School will see Ofsted to return within the next 24 months. During its most recent inspection Elton was rated “good”.

The original building was opened in 1954.

Construction of a new building on the same site began in summer 2015 and opened to pupils in September 2016. It was constructed as part of a nationwide plan to replace the schools in poorest condition.[3]
