School Description

Pupils are beginning to learn more than they have in the past. Teachers are starting to raise their expectations of pupils. However, pupils and students at this school have not achieved well for far too long. This is especially the case for disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The pupils and students whom we spoke with told us that they feel safe in school. They describe the school as a happy place and they are positive about the recent improvements in behaviour. However, a minority of pupils have concerns about the behaviour on the school’s busiest corridors. Others told us that their learning in lessons is sometimes disrupted, but that this is not commonplace. Although pupils’ attendance has started to improve, too many pupils and students do not attend school regularly. They miss out on vital learning. Mostly, pupils and students told us that bullying is dealt with swiftly. They are confident that there is someone to talk to if they have any concerns. Pupils appreciate the wide variety of clubs on offer, such as those for sports, cooking and drama. They value visits from guest speakers to learn about careers. They enjoy the various trips that are organised to enhance their learning.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Manchester Health Academy Reviews

Average Rating:


“Great teachers”
"> This is an amazing school which strives for our children’s successful futures. The teachers are amazing and inspiring to my children!
“My daughter looks forward to Mondays”
"> My daughter and I looked at various sixth forms as her current school were not offering sport. Although we liked the look and the feel of the school I had reservations. My daughter would be going from an all girls, high achieving grammar school and it would be a massive change for her. I had absolutely no reason to worry. My daughter is really coming out of her shell at this school and is becoming more confident by the day. She actually said she looks forward to Mondays because she gets bored at weekends (now that's a major achievement when a 16 year old looks forward to going to school).
“Don't send your child to this school”
"> In my option, standards of teaching are consistent at this school. Lots of glossy brochures about support etc. but not much given. This is a school more concerned with exam results rather than supporting young people to become well balanced free thinking young adults.
