We’ve tried to answer some of your questions to tell you what you need to know about the Manchester Communication Academy.

There was no existing high school in Harpurhey so we were able to build a new school culture from the ground up. It is very important to us that everyone gets a chance to find and grow their talents and to learn as an individual.

Where is the Academy?

The Academy is located at the corner of Rochdale Road and Queens Road in Harpurhey, North Manchester.

What will it be like to learn there?

Learning at the Academy will be exciting, challenging and rewarding. We aim to help all of our students to acquire the skills required for a successful future.

Who will go to the Academy?

Year 6 students will get a letter from Manchester City Council in September 2011 telling them how to apply. At the same time teachers will give all students a form for them to fill in with their parents. This form can also be filled in online at www.manchester.gov.uk/admissions

How will I get to school every day?

You can walk, cycle or take the bus. Some of the local bus routes have been changed to go past the Academy every morning and evening. If you do cycle to school there are bike racks so that you can keep your bike safe.

When will the Academy be full?

The Academy opened in September 2010 for Year 7 students, who were the only ones to learn at the Academy for the first year. New students will join each year until the school will eventually be full in 2014
