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.

The Ghyll Head Residential for Year 7 is finally here! Below are a couple of points for students to remember:

  • Students should arrive at the Academy as normal at 8.40am and in their own clothing.
  • Please bring a packed lunch
  • Pack plenty of layers to keep warm.
  • Please do not bring any sweets, fizzy drinks or excessive snacks – these will be confiscated.
  • We recommend phones are not brought as we cannot be responsible for loss or damage, and the mobile phone reception is poor at Ghyll Head
  • If your parents would like an update, they can contact Academy reception.
  • Don’t forget to bring a book; there will be some quiet time in the evenings.
  • Remember, we are there to represent the Manchester Health Academy community, develop a team ethos and have fun!
