Who to Contact

Key contact information for parents/carers, to help you find the right person to deal with your enquiry.

Reporting Absence

Phone: 0161 230 8039 and press option 1

If your child is unable to attend the academy you must ring before 8.20am to inform us of the reason why. It is important that you phone on every day of absence so that we know your child will not be attending and you do not receive a text message asking about his or her whereabouts. Text messages are sent for safeguarding reasons. This ensures that you know your child has not registered at the academy. If you receive a text message please respond so that we know your child is safe.

Regular and punctual attendance is critical if students are to benefit from the opportunities available to them and enjoy a successful and fulfilling school experience.For more information on attendance, leave of absence forms etc, please visit our Attendance page.
