Who are we?

Unity Academy Blackpool is an all-through 4-16 sponsored Academy, which opened as a new Academy in September 2013 building on the work of the predecessor school, Unity College.

Most recently, we have undergone a huge investment into our school facilities, resulting in the provision of brand new, purpose built facilities for all primary year groups and the complete transformation of our secondary provision, resulting in giving us outstanding teaching and learning facilities across the whole school. The key focus for us all within the Academy is to raise standards, and in particular those of external performance measures. Our first five years have been very successful and we are currently Blackpool’s highest performing secondary in terms of progress measures.  Our Ofsted inspection in October 2017 judged us to be Good in all areas.  We are determined to build upon this further and are looking to appoint like-minded professionals to continue our journey of improvement.
