Great Academy Ashton
|Great Academy Ashton|
|Head teacher||Jenny Langley|
|Age||11 to 18|
The school was formed on 1 September 2008 as a result of a merger Hartshead Sports College and Stamford High School. New Charter Academy was originally based over the two former school sites, but moved to a new £40 million sole campus in September 2011.
Great Academy Ashton is sometimes informally known as GAA and used to be called New Charter Academy up until September 2017.
The school was placed in special measures in January 2017 and as a result the former headteacher left. The current headteacher has been working at the school since April 2017.
