"I like Manchester Academy because everyone here is very friendly and helpful. 

I enjoy all the different subjects and the teachers are very nice."



Cheryl Thananki, Year 9 student 

James Eldon, Principal

Welcome to Manchester Academy – a popular, vibrant and inclusive school at the heart of Manchester.  

We are highly ambitious for our students and seek to give them an outstanding education that fully prepares them for adult life.  Our unique location in the centre of our city means we connect our students to universities, employers and a host of fantastic opportunities.

These opportunities are not just focused around our academic curriculum; at Manchester Academy, we firmly believe there is more to a good education than excellent exam grades which is why we are committed to providing an Education with Character.  This means that in everything we do – both inside and outside the classroom – we seek to nurture key skills that are vital for life beyond school such as team-building, resilience, creativity, public speaking and enterprise.  There really is something for every child at Manchester Academy – whatever their interests or abilities.

We are housed in a spectacular purpose-built school building which is fully equipped with the very latest facilities.  But our school is about so much more than bricks and mortar; it is about the students, teachers, support staff and parents who are part of our diverse and welcoming community.

We very much hope that you and your child will consider becoming a part of our community.  Please come and visit us to see for yourself what we can offer your child.

I look forward to welcoming you to Manchester Academy.
