In 2013, the school converted to Academy status. Academies have been springing up in ever greater numbers over the past few years across England. Academy schools are funded directly by the Department of Education rather than the local authority. This gives an academy more autonomy over and above the local authority when it comes to deciding how the school is run. Thus, 2013 was, like 2009, a significant landmark in the history of Alsager School.
The campus on Hassall Road has been earmarked for a total of 300 houses, office space and a retail development, including shops, restaurants and financial services. It was proposed that no more than 150 houses would be built before 2011, with the remaining 150 built between 2011 and 2014 however plans have since been delayed.
