We were recognised as Outstanding in our most recent inspection (Ofsted 2018), for the way in which we draw together the collaborative strengths of over 200 schools and colleges in Greater Manchester and the North West, with the University of Manchester Institute of Education as a centre of educational thinking and practice.
