Our Past, Present and Future

We firmly believe that Burnage Academy for Boys is an improving school and one that can offer an outstanding education to your son as confirmed by recent OSTED inspection reports.

Burnage has a long established reputation for excellence stretching back 70 years. Amongst our old boys we can number Sir Roland Smith (Chairman of Manchester United Football Club), Lord Foster (the world famous architect), Michael Croft (Founder and Director of the National Youth Theatre) and Manchester United's Wes Brown.


Burnage Academy for Boys is not however an institution trying to live off fading laurels, but rather your local community high school striving to improve standards for academic excellence, behaviour, performance and dress. The school is committed to developing the most modern education based on traditional values of respect for others, hard work and discipline. This is now being borne out by continued improvement in our results, especially at GCSE.


School’s Ethos and Values

We expect all members of the Academy try to act in such ways that do not diminish, hurt or damage others with differing or even opposite views.

We hope that all members of the Academy give each other sufficient time and space so that we may learn something from each other and that we find a common bond in a sense of shared humanity, shared human needs, shared aspirations and shared hopes as members of Burnage Academy for Boys.


Mission Statement

We aim to develop a school where everyone is valued and can achieve success, enabling them to make a positive contribution to the community.
