Caring for Every Individual
Happy, Caring and Supportive
Manchester High is a close knit community and all our girls are known to members of staff as individuals. Each girl has a Form Tutor who is there to keep an eye on her progress. These tutors work closely with our Pastoral Deputy and Heads of Year to ensure each girl maximises her potential and enjoys her time at school.
Pupils in need of extra pastoral support can also turn to one of our two nurses or our school counsellor.
Making friends is something we know both girls and parents worry about and we are focused on helping pupils find their feet as quickly as possible. Our active and connected alumnae community is proof that the friendships formed at Manchester High last a lifetime.
Our experienced staff work in close partnership with parents to ensure that girls thrive academically, personally and socially. PHSE and Well Being lessons cover a wide range of topics and include sessions on physical and mental health, self-esteem and good citizenship. We also have ‘theme weeks’ across the school that focus on work/life balance, celebrating success and developing the resilience needed to cope with setbacks.
As a multicultural school, we embrace many faiths. Moral, spiritual and cultural awareness is developed through a range of assemblies, both religious and secular, and provision is made for girls to pray or meditate if they wish.
The house system is very important to the sense of community that exists at Manchester High. Girls are allocated a house on arrival and quickly bond with their house peers from across the different year groups.
