Choosing The Best For Your Son


How to change the school your son has been offered.

Call us on 0161 432 1527 and leave a voicemail or email us at One of our friendly team will return your call and answer any questions you may have.

Due to current circumstances, we are not able to conduct school tours so we have created a virtual tour you can see here and we recommend following one or more of our social media channels to get a sense of all the things your son could look forward to as a student here. We also recommend asking previous students and their families about our school. We were founded in 1932 and have gathered a considerable Alumni over the years, many of whom remain active members of our school community.

Even if you have already been accepted to another school, it's not too late to change your choice - simply apply again in writing (by post or email) to Manchester City Council with the name of your preferred school - e.g Burnage Academy for Boys. Further information can be found at
