Our academic year runs from September to the following July.
We know parents and carers might have questions when it comes to school. We’ve answered a few frequently asked questions below.
But if there’s anything we’ve missed, get in touch with us and we’d be happy to help.

We recognise that some of our students have sensory issues when it comes to clothing, so we offer a range of uniform items. Students in post-16 can wear their own clothes, but we recommend that they choose something comfortable.
Students have the option of a school meal or packed lunch. We offer different options each day, taking into account our students’ different dietary requirements and taste. If your child has a special diet, let us know – we’re happy to support this.
We also provide daily healthy snacks as part of our personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme. This programme helps students develop social and communication skills, learn about making healthy choices and extend their food range
We can administer medications but we need your permission in writing. Any time we administer medication, we record it on your child’s file so you can keep up to date.
If we need to speak to you directly, we’ll send you an email or pick up the phone. We’ll also meet you in person through informal meetings, placement and annual reviews, and parent forums or parents evening. And we send out home-school books and regular newsletters.
The school’s governing body is made up of dedicated people who volunteer their time to support and monitor the school. Our governors meet at least three times each year. Governors take on specific responsibilities and work with the senior leadership team to monitor and raise standards.
If you’re interested in becoming a parent governor please contact the headteacher on 0161 283 4750, or the clerk on 0161 283 4801.
Mr Giles Gaddum, the chairman, can be contacted on the number above, or by post:

We hold a parent and carer forum every term. This is a great opportunity for you to drop in and chat about your child’s progress.
We also hold an annual parents evening. This focuses on our students’ performance and achievements over the past year.
