Tameside: worst-performing schools in Greater Manchester

Every secondary school pupil in Trafford is being taught in a good or outstanding school – making it the best authority in the country.

The council topped a national league table for secondary schools released by education watchdogs.
Ofsted has ranked every local council across England for the percentage of students attending good or outstanding schools.

Trafford came joint first with 100 per cent, while its neighbour Manchester was seventh from bottom across England with just 42 pc.

Wigan came 10th nationally with a 95pc rating, and Salford achieved 65pc rating, while Stockport got 57pc.

Tameside was worst-performing in Greater Manchester and fifth lowest nationally with only 34pc of secondary schools ranked good or outstanding. Read more: Manchester Evening News

A borough of dullards spawning a brand new generation of dullards. No surprises there then. A stroll through the centre of Ashton amongst the local jobless gibbering dimwits on a weekday is an education in itself, best of luck to the teachers taking on their kids. 13 years of Labour government and Labour TMBC and that's the result. One thing's for sure - it augurs well for Taylor and his Tameside Labour crew who can be assured of continued dominance in the area long into the future.

It's in the Advertiser that Ged Cooney's son has been done for possessing cocaine.

Cooney is head of education in Tameside. Cast aside the fact the man doesn't know how to use a computer, nor can he read or write, but how is he expected to instill discipline on schools if he can't keep his own children in order?

Kieran Quinn sacked the wrong man. He should of got rid of Ged Cooney. Bring back David Sweeton into the cabinet.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Compared to Droylsden, Ashton is practically Elysium itself, Droylsden is swiftly becoming a ghost town. Half of the shops are shuttered and the remaining half are pawn shops, discount shops, pound shops and charity shops.

When they developed the site of the old co-op into retail units I was not alone in expecting it to to be the birth of the New Droylsden, we expected a Woolworths, a McDonalds, an HMV etc.

Instead we got decay, a tram line cutting off all traffic into the town and parking fees picking off any stragglers.

TMBC have betrayed everybody, it is unfortunate that they are so hard to bring to account. I rest assured however, that one day they shall.

A truly shocking, and worse accurate, report on Tameside local authority's diastrous pursuit and attainment of wholesale educational mediocrity.
Labour, in action. Socialism, in action.
The borough is now infested (in the same sense as cockroaches) with an army of shuffling subhumans whose massive egos and 'attitood' are an exact contradiction of their actual inferiority in every fundamental and important human quality.
They should all be sterilised, as indeed in many cases should their parents and grandparents have been. A significant proportion should be exterminated.
Imagine a Britain without them and without the other infestation, the alien hordes.

@serpent slayer

The politicians are accountable - in Droylsden local Labour have the overwhelming backing of the people. With their trams, ghost town and asylum seekers they got the policies they voted for, and if they don't like it they can express their grievance at the ballot box. And if that's asking too much then Droylsden people should just button it. Along with Denton it's the most saturated area in the borough for red support. Their policies have helped kill their town centre, and if that's not enough to sway them then we know why politicians arrogantly think they can do what they want and get away with it.

The tram line development work itself played a major role in killing local business, helping ferry people into city centres is not exactly good for the health of local small towns. No-one from Manchester way will be encouraged to shop in Droylsden / Ashton by the new tram service, but more Tamesiders certainly will be encouraged to shop in Manchester instead of going local. That's hardly rocket science, but try explaining that to your average sixty-something Tameside Labour amateur historian and MCFC lemming and you may as well be preaching to the birds.

Why does TC not start a new basic question for readers.

Do you think Tameside is a good place to Live with its total failures in Education,its known deplorable Hospital,and its highest position for road traffic,plus its worst in the North for toxic air pollution.
Yes or No
Keep the question simple for the dregs.

Railbound, expensive, low capacity and c**p said...

Altrincham's had the tram for 20 years and has the highest proportion of closed shops in the high street in the whole of the North West.
The free and copious parking for CARS (those things that 80% of the moving public use but which many lunatic local authorities in this region, pursuing crackpot agendas, hate) at the Trafford Centre played a large part in this.

Your health and welfare references on your blog are in total contradiction to how you yourself act.
The Advertiser shows your meeting with Longendale Politicians supporting a Longendale ByPass,and you conveniently
totally disregard the plight of Denton and Audenshaw residents (47,000) approx 25% of the Tameside population.
Health and Welfare quotes from yourself indicate your utter contempt for approx 25% of Tamesiders who You Know live in the worst already designated Air Polluted region in the North West created by nearing 400,000 daily vehicles using Tameside Roads M67/M60/A57roads
So here you are deciding to increase the suffering of 47,000 Tamesiders by stuffing a further 40,000 daily vehicles into the area
as stated by the Highways Agency and the DfT in their Public Inquiry evidence regarding a Longendale ByPass consequences.
You are unfit to serve the Electorate seeing you are directly complicit in this direct attack on the health and welfare of thousands of already suffering Men,Women,Children and the Aged in Tameside who you are perfectly aware of.
Discuss with me the factual implications of your deplorable actions or ignore your accountability.

The latest HIV figures are out.
Approximately 100,000 are now infected.
1 in 20 men, 5%, who have had sex (buggery) with other men are infected. In London it's 1 in 12, 8.33%.
This compares with 0.15% of the general population being infected, a 3333% discrepancy, or a 5553% discrepancy for London.
Nevertheless this lifestyle, the new 'normal', is being actively promoted by the state from primary school upwards.
The powers that be have an agenda to promote such behaviour and any mainstream politician who spoke out against it would be finished. The homosexual lobby, their cronies and other interested parties now utterly infest the British establishment.

Switzerland is the best place to be born in the world (and Britain is 27th!)

Quality-of-life index links results of who is happiest and who has best quality of life in terms of wealth, health and trust in public institutions.

Switzerland is the best place to be born in the world in 2013 - and Britain is just 27th - behind South Korea, the US and Israel, new research shows.

People born in Switzerland will tend to be the happiest and have the best quality of life judged in terms of wealth, health and trust in public institutions.

The Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden and Denmark also all make the top five in a 'quality-of-life' index highlighting where it is best to be born next year.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a sister company of The Economist, attempts to measure which country will provide the best opportunities for a healthy, safe and prosperous life in years to come.

Their index links the results of subjective life-satisfaction surveys - how happy people say they are - to objective determinants of quality of life across countries.

One of the most important factors is being rich, but other factors come into play - including crime, trust in public institutions and the health of family life.

Nigeria has the unenviable title of being the worst country for a baby to enter the world in 2013.

Despite their economic dynamism, none of the BRIC countries - Brazil, Russia, India and China - score impressively.

In 1988 America came top of a rank of 50 countries according to where it would be best to be born in the world.

Regarding the comment I made to Quinn and copied to TC my comment has been removed from his Quinn`s blog site.
So scared,frightened,embarrassed,
ignorant,despotic,perhaps that`s the mentality of our Leader. Simply blocking substantiated,
proven facts relating to the Health and Welfare of Tamesiders.
Perhaps the Transport Secretary of State should now read what Quinn blocked and also the Tameside Advertiser.
What Quinn detests will get widely circulated.

That's shocking TC, I imagine that most of this cruelty is done off-shore?

Would make sense, Globalism ensures that none are spared the cruelty of the husks that hoard gold for their masters.

I rarely have the coin to buy expensive coats and I am already boycotting several chains due to pre-December Christmas advertising so it is no skin off my nose. I have my duffel and plenty of synthetic fibre jumpers to keep me toasty.
