“Leaders’ actions have a positive impact on pupil progress across the academy.”   Inspection Report 2016

Here at MCMA, the ethos of our Academy runs through all that we do and echoes our Academy’s sense of community, the wider responsibility we have to both ourselves and each other and our collective desire to strive to achieve our best.
Here at MCMA we are “Working together for the best in everyone”.
Our Vision
“Together we have the highest aspirations and expectations so that everyone achieves excellence in all they do and is equipped to lead happy and successful lives.”
Here at The Manchester Creative and Media Academy we are committed to our vision and work hard to achieve the very best for all our students, staff and the wider community. We have enviable facilities, fantastic students and dedicated staff and we work in partnership with our parents/carers to achieve the very best. We are committed to ensuring that our students leave us with both the qualifications and skills that are required to lead happy and successful lives.
We are also committed to being at the heart of the local community that we serve and we share our excellent facilities. Many in our local community use our enviable sports facilities and we also take part in local initiatives such as ‘Charlestown in Bloom’. We are always looking for ways in which we can engage further with our local community.
Our Values
Respect for ourselves, each other and our community
Commitment to strive to achieve our best, and to support others to achieve their best
Trust in ourselves and each other so that we can achieve our best
Our Academy Rewards system is built around our values and these are embedded in all that we strive to achieve. We work together to achieve a strong sense of community within the Academy and our Pastoral system and strong focus on developing students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural skills is woven throughout the curriculum, our extra-curricular offer, form times and assemblies. We demonstrate strong attitudes to learning that encompass a pride in our Academy. We are polite to others at all times, arrive prepared for learning, are punctual and develop the skills that enable us to remain relentlessly positive as we strive to achieve our very best.
We expect our students to be involved in the decision making processes of our Academy and have a wide range of student leadership opportunities ranging from being a Student Parliament member to being a Sports Leader. All these opportunities enable our students’ voices to be heard and allow us to work together so that our vision can be achieved.
