We’re an 11-16 secondary school, proud to serve the North Manchester community.

Thinking about applying for a place with us?

Our admissions go through Manchester City Council Admissions Policy. Their website has all the information you need on how to apply for a place at our Academy.

If you have any other questions before submitting your application you can contact Mrs Shaw at 0161 947 1023 or email

Want to look around the Academy?

We hold open evenings throughout the year to give you a chance to look around the Academy. These dates will be shared before each event, but if you have missed an open evening, or are unable to attend, then we are happy to take you on a tour of the Academy at any time. We just ask that you contact Mrs Shaw on 0161 947 1023 so we can pick a time that works for both of us.

Want to appeal?

We are part of the Manchester Local Authority Coordinated Admissions Scheme. This means that Manchester Local Authority deals with all applications and appeals for us. If you want to appeal a decision, please go to their appeals website or contact them at
