Manchester Academy is a popular and vibrant multi-cultural school at the heart of its community.
We have the highest expectations for all our students and seek to nurture in each and every one of them the skills, confidence and enthusiasm for learning that they need to succeed. This approach is exemplified by our mission to bring out ‘the best in everyone’ and help all our students make strong progress during their time with us.
We aim to provide a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum for our students, with a focus on academic achievement, wider experiences and opportunities to lead and build character. We also instil in our students the need to create an atmosphere of fairness, in which individual dignity is upheld and respected. In this, we nurture our young people to be unashamed about promoting values such as equality and respect for all, as well as encouraging them to have the very highest educational aspirations.
We are part of United Learning – a national group of schools which aims to provide excellent education to children and young people across the country, with a strong cluster here in Manchester. In particular, we benefit significantly from opportunities to collaborate, develop best practice teaching and learning and create innovative curricula. These partnerships likewise allow our students to access the very best experiences – from enrichment and sport to careers guidance and Higher Education access support – in addition to making use of our own excellent facilities.
We are an ambitious school – for our students and in our dedication to continuous improvement. As a staff team, we are committed to providing high-quality teaching and to creating an environment that inspires students each day to take those extra steps in their learning. Ultimately, we want all of our students to leave us equipped with the skills to become lifelong learners and valuable members of their local, national and global communities.
Whether you are a parent looking for an excellent school for your child or a teacher looking to progress your career, I hope that what you read here encourages you to find out more about our academy. We would warmly welcome anyone who is interested in an education at Manchester Academy to arrange a visit to see for yourself what we can offer you or your child.
