Choosing The Best For Your Son

Due to current circumstances, we are only able to conduct limited school tours, please get in touch to book in. We held our first virtual open day on 1st October and all resources remain available here.

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 would also encourage you to speak to 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 applied 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
