It is with the greatest of pleasure that I am able to introduce myself as Headteacher of Burnage Academy for Boys to all students joining us in September, or to those considering us in the future.

I am very happy that your son has been offered a place here, or that you are thinking about giving us responsibility for your son's education. I am incredibly proud and fortunate to lead such an amazing school: one of the highest achieving schools not only in Manchester but in the whole of the North West of England, and one that Ofsted rightly graded Outstanding in October 2018.

We're proud of the way in which our values of resilience, independence and care underpin all of the work that we do.

Meanwhile, if you would like to take a tour – either to familiarise yourself with our campus and our staff ready for your son to attend OR if you are thinking about Burnage Academy for Boys as a possibility for your son – please view our virtual open event videos, or contact us to arrange a visit at any time.

Yours sincerely,
