Transition Welcome & Resources

Mr K Harrison, Headteacher

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.

I am very happy that your son has been offered a place here and 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.

Due to current circumstances, our usual welcome events and transition visits have had to be postponed. However, I look forward to being able to welcome you into the school as soon as it is possible.

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 join us on our Virtual Tour.

Yours sincerely,

NB. In order to secure your son’s place at Burnage, parents and carers are required to accept or decline the offer they have been given. If you haven’t done so already, you can do this by calling us on 0161 432 1527 and leaving a voicemail, or emailing us at  We will respond to answer any questions you may have and inform the Local Authority Admissions team of your decision.

In the meantime, please make use of the transition resources below and familiarise yourself with the key information about the school.

If you have any queries or concerns, our staff are here to support you in making the best choice for your son. Call us on 0161 4321527 or email our dedicated transition team:
