We live in a fast changing world where the education that we give our children is more important than it has ever been. When they leave school, it is our duty to make sure that they are ready for an adult world that is no longer confined to the streets of Manchester but is a truly interdependent world with global challenges.

At Burnage we believe that we must prepare our boys to be the best that they can be in a number of ways. Obviously we want them to achieve the best that they can....

An Invitation From The Headmaster To See BAfB In Action

At Burnage we do not believe in Open Evenings or Open Days. We believe that you should see our school on a normal day, with boys taking their normal lessons. Anyone can dress a school up for a day. We hope every day is an excellent day so every day is an Open Day for new parents and their sons.

If you look at our exam results and compare them with other schools, you will be shocked at how much better our boys do than elsewhere. This year (2017) our boys achieved:

  • Grades 4-9 including English and Maths = 63%
  • Grade 4+ in English = 71%
  • Grade 4+ in maths = 67%

If you would like to visit us in action, please contact the school on 0161 432 1527 and book an appointment for any Thursday morning before October and alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting on Wednesday 20th September and Tuesday 26th September.

The tour takes about one hour and includes a meeting with a senior member of staff to answer questions.

Due to a change in information available by Manchester City Council, from 11th of June 2018 they will no longer be able tell us which students are entitled to free school meals (fsm).

Please click the image below to find out if your son is entitled to free school meals.  

We urge all parents/guardians to claim free school meals for your sons if they are eligible so that we can provide pupils with a lunch free of charge and so that we can claim the additional funding available to the school per eligible pupil, which we use to support your child’s education and ensure that they reach their full potential. 

From September 2017, BAfB are introducing an on line payment system called “ParentPay” a service that means parents/guardians can pay their son's school meals, clubs, uniforms, fees and/or other school activity either online using debit or credit cards or using cash in a local store using PayPoint.

It’s simple, safe, convenient and your child no longer needs to carry cash into school.

We will send all parents/guardians an activation letter with instructions and details to access your account. For more details, click here.
