Students took part in this year's BBC School Report News Day, with budding journalists brainstorming story ideas, compiling questions and then interviewing fellow students and staff around school. Two students were also interviewed live on BBC Radio Manchester, with clips from their interviews about music and fashion being played out on the air.
School Report News Day 2014 is a BBC initiative to encourage students to learn more about media and reporting, with more than 30,000 UK pupils turning their classrooms into newsrooms for the day.

Year 10 students enjoyed a fabulous day at Emmanuel College in Cambridge, as part of their Cambridge Challenge Day. They attended a workshop, listening to undergraduate students talk about their University experiences; dined in the Old Library; took a tour of the University buildings; participated in an inter-school debate: and listened to two lectures given for Cambridge PhD students.
The trip was a wonderful opportunity to experience life as a Cambridge undergraduate and students learnt that with the right approach, and lots of hard work, everyone has a chance to win a place at one of Britain’s top universities.
School Governors were given a guided tour of the Sixth Form Centre currently under construction and due for completion this September. Deputy Headteacher Gill Theobald accompanied them round the site. The new Sixth Form Centre will include study areas, a refectory and a 300-seat auditorium.
Students from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 took part in a sponsored cross country race for this year’s Sport Relief, running a one mile course to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic charity. In total they raised over £2,000. Thanks to everyone who supported them and congratulations to Fortius who have currently raised the most cash.
Sixth formers, Scott Dearnaley and Ben Holland dressed as a frog and a penguin to leap frog their way around the course too, raising extra funds.
Well done everyone.
The science department arranged for an inflatable planetarium to be brought into the school, so that students could find out more about astronomy and the stars at night.
Topics discussed included the life cycle of stars, different constellations and the moon and solar system.
A huge thank you to the Ogden Trust, who funded the project, and to Mr Cass for coordinating it.
A very warm welcome to our website. We hope that reading these pages will help you to gain an insight into the essence and heart of our school.
We place great importance on our core purpose of teaching and learning. We strive to operate a 'CAN DO' culture where people are able to pursue ideas and take risks - they are developed and supported. This ethos was recognised in our Ofsted inspection in September 2011:
"Students espouse this aspirational and 'can do, will do' culture..... Alongside this formidable aspirational ethos is a culture of mutual respect and value in the fundamental benefits and joys of learning."
We pride ourselves on the good relationships that exist at all levels and which are based on trust, openness, teamwork and respect. There is a 'buzz' and enthusiasm about the place. People are curious and keen to try out new ideas. There is a strong sense of optimism and pride in the school's successes and in our capacity to develop and improve. We have high expectations and a strong sense of achievement.
