Fantastic A-level Results
Our Ofsted Outstanding Sixth Form has received matching Outstanding results.
Our students achieved an average grade of a B across all their subjects.
Over 40% of our students attained 3x A*-B, with an impressive 70% of our A-level grades being A*-B.
Our value added for AS and A2 results are significantly above national.
All of these performance measures place us at the top of the tables for Greater Manchester non-
grammar state provision*.
Over half of our students are going to the prestigious Russell Group universities and 60% to the
Sutton 30, this is over 5 times the local authority figure (Sutton Trust, 2011).
*Based on the 2014/2015 DfE Performance Tables

Our Sixth Form held a private view of the A level Art, Photography, Textiles and Media exhibition last night - just amazing! Some of the wonderful work displayed at the A level exhibition can viewed at these Instagram accounts:
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 and on supporting our students in developing the ‘KASH’ – Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Habits – which will enable them to flourish and succeed. This ethos was recognised in our Ofsted inspection in December 2014:
The headteacher, senior leaders, middle leaders and governing body work with passion and a shared vision and determination for all students at the school to excel at all levels. There is an established and embedded ethos throughout the school of high expectations and aspirations for all. The headteacher is relentless in her drive for even higher standards and continuously challenges both staff and students to do their very best.”
We work hard to ensure that every member of our school community has access to a rich and diverse range of opportunities. For our students, this is provided through our Cornerstones programme which comprises Academic Aspiration , Leadership and Service , Culture and Creativity and Competition and Physical Endeavour . We believe that these four Cornerstones underpin an educational experience which will prepare students for life beyond school and deliver our vision which is
"…for every student, regardless of background or circumstance, to achieve the grades and develop the qualities which will open the door to the future of their choice"
