About us 


Our school vision is 'I'm positive about change today' and we believe every pupil coming to our school will develop a strong sense of themselves, achieve the best qualifications and be prepared for adult life. We place a high priority on developing the values to make our pupils into good people as well as preparing them to enter the best universities and move onto influential careers.

From the moment a pupil joins our school they are encouraged to believe three things – there are no limits to your achievement, being part of our  school family is something to cherish and enjoy and academic success is for everyone. 

The heart of our school is the strong family relationships that exist between staff, students and families. We celebrate the diversity of our community and continually look outwards to form positive relationships with others.


We are a family team of staff and pupils promote a celebration of difference and a belief that everyone belongs to our school. 

One of the hallmarks of our school is we never stand still . We constantly seek to look forward, to get better and improve the quality of education we offer to every child.  We encourage talent of all kinds – musical, sporting, creative and artistic

Our success is based on ensuring every child is known, high expectations of everything we do and a relentless focus on outstanding teaching.

We strive every day to meet the challenge of our motto As you look through this website, I hope you will get a flavour of the ambitious, forward thinking, successful and happy Neurodiverse family that is IMPACT North West Schools.
