“I’d planned to return to scientific research after 2 years of teaching, but in my second year I came to Manchester Academy. This was in 2008. The inspirational community here make this school too good to leave. 

Despite having visited many schools, including those in the private sector, I am truly amazed by the unique positivity and determination amongst our staff and students to maximise progress and enjoy our learning. I hope my own child will be part of this team when he is 11”.
