Partnerships..... are an important part of what keeps our school improving and sharing good practice. Some are more formal than others,  but all are equally important. Here are some of our most enduring partnerships 

Heart of Manchester is a partnership of 8 schools in the heart of Central Manchester. The partnership has been in existence for over 10 years and continues to grow and develop in response to the needs of children and families, staff and communities, as well as educational reforms. The HOM Partnership has a vision to provide the best teaching and learning to ensure no child or school is left behind. We reflect on, and renew, our commitment to this vision regularly with annual Headteacher reviews. This has built sustainability and resilience in our ways of working and it goes from strength to strength.

We work together to raise standards in our own schools and support others to do the same. We also deliver School Direct teacher training in Manchester Schools, pioneer exciting approaches to teaching and learning and provide development for new and aspiring school leaders.

Manchester Pupil Parliament are a group of Rights Respecting Schools which promotes  pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication,  organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences.  We aim to promote pupil voice and raise awareness of 42 children’s rights (Convention of  the Rights of the Child), linking children’s rights to what is happening in the world today.  We want to support and guide all our children to become the best possible citizens so they  can become the best that they can be (Article 29 of Convention of the Rights of the Child)! 

There are currently 19 primary and secondary schools who are members of Manchester Pupil Parliament and MPP is looking to increase its membership.  

Transforming Learning Cultures

The partnership began in 2011 when all 3 schools recognised common challenges and shared vision for empowering children and families to grow as rights respecting and responsible citizens. The partnership became the Transforming Learning Cultures Partnership TLC 


St Mary's works in partnership to develop best practice in Maths with Maths Hub NW1

About Maths Hub NW1

As a hub, we collaborate with a wide range of enthusiastic, talented and dedicated maths teachers and strategic partners, and we are confident that together, we will achieve our fundamental ambition to raise standards in mathematics and inspire a passion and love of this subject in children and young people.

Working with over 500 participating schools in Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale and Stockport, the impact we have had on improving young people’s maths has been extremely significant. We also work with the Northern Powerhouse in opportunity areas to increase the social mobility of young people.

Each Maths Hub is a partnership, led locally by a school or college. The Lead School for NW1 Maths Hub is Altrincham Grammar School for Girls. We are proud to be part of the Bright Futures Education Trust, working alongside our two Teaching School Hubs. Please find out more here: Bright Futures Teaching School Hubs.

NW1 Maths Hub and the Teaching School Hubs provide innovative approaches to school to school support, professional development for teachers, research and development and initial teacher training.
