Let me introduce you to the truth about our school.

Ofsted Outstanding, October 2018

Highest progress for boys in all of Manchester

Performance of boys in the top 3% of non-selective schools in the North West of England

It is with the greatest of pleasure that as the new Headteacher of Burnage Academy for Boys I am able to welcome you to our website.

I am bursting with pride at how fortunate I am to lead such an impressive school. I say well done and thank you to all of our parents and carers who made the decision to send their son to the highest achieving school in the whole of Manchester and one of the top performing schools in the entire region. It was a wise choice.

Ofsted recognised how impressive our boys are, how well they conduct themselves and how a boys’ school like Burnage can create impressive young adults. As a school for boys, we celebrate boys and achieve great success, whereas across the country boys continue to fall further and further behind. This isn’t the case at Burnage.

There are many perceptions of Burnage Academy for Boys in and around the city and local community. Many people are aware that we are an Ofsted Outstanding school. Many people won’t be aware that our boys achieve GCSE results that place us in the top 3% of non-selective schools in the North West of England and our English and Maths results are in the top 1%! You are welcome to visit at an appropriate time by appointment to see our safe, harmonious, purposeful school for yourself. We would be delighted for you to judge us on what you actually see. more
