At Manchester Health Academy we aim to ensure that our students leave the Academy with high aspirations and are equipped with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to achieve in a safe, stimulating and supportive environment.

Our sponsors are the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), with co-sponsorship from Manchester City Council. Together, we deliver a unique learning experience at the forefront of Secondary and Sixth Form Education. The Academy endorses the principle of access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum where British values are promoted and providing equal opportunities for all students.

We are pleased to say that Ofsted rated the Academy as a Good school in their most recent inspection.

In choosing Manchester Health Academy as a new student, parent, or member of staff you will be joining an establishment that is the local secondary provider of choice and hub of the community.

Unfortunately we have had to postpone the Academy’s Sports Day until Monday 16th July due to the wet weather today.

All students MUST wear their PE kit, bring water and suncream.

End of term arrangements

  • We will finish for the year on Thursday 19th July.
  • All students will have a final assembly and will be dismissed at 12.15pm.
  • Students eligible for free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch, which they will need to eat on the premises and then leave once they have finished their lunch.
  • Lunch will not be provided for other students owing to early closure.
  • Reward vouchers will be distributed in the assemblies on that morning and it is especially important that all students attend the last day as expected on every other school day.
