We believe that access to excellent training and development is an entitlement of any teacher and our staff members comment on our commitment to this, rating the quality of our CPD highly during staff feedback surveys.
 
Our students work hard. They recognise the high expectations that we have of them and want this for themselves. We believe in pupils having access to a wide range of extra curricular activities and visits and these, along with our well regarded focus on pupils' overall development, helps to create young people who care about themselves, others and the community in which they live. Our extra curricular activities and trips are both fun and varied, encompassing all areas of the curriculum including the creative arts, languages and sports and provide you with opportunities to share your passion for your subject with others.
 
We belong to a wide range of partnerships including work with The Manchester Grammar School and Swire in a mandarin in schools project, The Manchester United Foundation which brings unique opportunities to work with the club and The Manchester Metropolitan University to name but a few. We also support the work of two local teaching schools and play an active role in initial teacher education, recently being asked to share our unique partnership work with ministers and others at a symposium at the Houses of Parliament.
