Headteacher's Welcome

At Burnage Academy for Boys, our pupils come first and thrive through our values of resilience, independence and care. Boys here do better, making more progress than they would at any other school in the North of England, with performance in English and Maths amongst the top 1% in the country. We've a range of opportunities for our pupils to develop both in class and through extra-curricular activities. We believe that young people should be prepared for success in life beyond Burnage, to make the best decisions for themselves, and to understand the world in which they live. Welcome to our school!

I am passionate about making young people’s lives better and I know how education can give any student - whatever their background or ability - opportunities for success. I care deeply about boys succeeding in education and it upsets me greatly that they are falling further and further behind in schools right across the country - but not here at Burnage.

I’m privileged to serve my home city of Manchester and lead a school where our focus is solely on boys and ensuring that they are valued, that their lives are enriched, and that they thrive.

It is clear that if you want your son to thrive and perform well academically in a non-selective school in Manchester, Burnage Academy for Boys is the choice for you.
