Kearsley Academy (formerly George Tomlinson School) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status. It is located in Kearsley in the English county of Greater Manchester.
Previously a foundation school administered by Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council, George Tomlinson School converted to academy status in September 2010 and was renamed Kearsley Academy. However the school continues to coordinate with Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council for admissions. The school introduced a sixth form provision in 2012 and relocated to new buildings in 2014.
Kearsley Academy offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A-levels, Cambridge Nationals and further BTECs. The school also specialises in mathematics and computing.
In 2018, Kearsley Academy came under scrutiny for its lack of action against a teacher who bullied a child due to the colour of her hair, as well as sending two boys home from school because their school shoes were "deemed incorrect" and did not match the school's uniform policy, despite being purchased from Clarks, a brand well known for high quality and acceptable school shoes.
