    What it’s like

    Founded as a co-educational school in 1855, and originally known as the Manchester Warehousemen and Clerks’ Orphan Schools, it remains faithful to its charitable origins. It was one of the first co-educational schools to join HMC and became independent in 1976 when the Direct Grant Scheme ended. On a single urban site, set in 80 acres of grounds near Manchester, the original Victorian buildings have been modernised. There have been extensive additions over the years, the most recent including a computer-aided language learning centre, computer centre and all weather floodlit sports pitch. The junior school is on the same site, and both are surrounded by extensive playing fields. The school is non-denominational. A sound academic education is given and examination results are very good. Music, art and drama are strong. There are regular county, and occasional national, representatives in sport.
