School Description

William Hulme’s Grammar School is larger than the average-sized school. It is an allthrough school that is part of the United Learning Trust. The United Learning Trust comprises 60 state sector academies, three free schools and 13 independent schools operated within the United Church Schools Trust. At William Hulme’s Grammar School, the board of trustees is accountable for the school. As part of the governance structure, the regional directors and senior director also hold leaders to account. The scheme of delegation sets out clearly what powers have been Inspection report: William Hulme’s Grammar School, 14–15 May 2019 Page 13 of 16 delegated to the local governing body. The school has gone through an extensive expansion programme. In September 2016, a new two-form entry primary building opened, including a Nursery provision. From September 2017, the admission number into Year 7 increased to 180 pupils. A new sixth-form centre building opened in September 2017. In January 2018, the school opened a specialist, local-authority-funded resource provision for pupils with autism spectrum disorder who have an education, health and care plan. Currently, there are seven pupils on roll from across the school. The proportion of pupils across the school with an education, health and care plan is above the national average. A new headteacher was appointed to the primary school in 2017. A new deputy headteacher was appointed in the primary phase in 2018. The school is a ‘hub’ school for subject networks, including mathematics. There is a higher proportion of boys on roll than girls. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils on roll is higher than the national average. A large majority of pupils speak English as an additional language and a significant number of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. A small number of pupils are educated at the Manchester Pupil Referral Unit.

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.
