All four Wythenshawe high schools have been extensively rebuilt to provide 21st Century learning environments in projects costing tens of millions led by Manchester City Council.
Newall Green High School has been rebuilt at a cost of £18.3 million. The school, a specialist Arts, Science with Mathematics and Vocational College, is one of only a handful of schools nationally which have three subject specialisms.
New homes for St Paul’s High School and Piper Hill SEN High School have been created on the St Paul’s site in Baguley in a £26 million project.
Two high schools were converted into academies in 2009. Parklands, sponsored by Manchester Airport, became Manchester Enterprise Academy with a focus on business and enterprise, while Central Manchester & Manchester Children’s NHS Trust’s sponsorship of Brookway brings a focus on health and bioscience to the new Manchester Health Academy.
