Seashell Trust-run Royal School Manchester has been top-rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted for the third successive inspection.

Anne Gough, head of Royal School Manchester, said: “I am extremely pleased to report that the School has maintained its outstanding status. This is the third consecutive outstanding Ofsted judgment for the school.

“I am so proud and delighted to be part of a remarkable team that provide such inspirational teaching and give children a real prospect of contributing in later life.”

The trust’s multi-million-pound modernisation of its Cheadle Hulme campus includes the construction of a new Royal School Manchester building, as part of its goal to be a national centre of excellence in the care and education of children and young people with the most complex neuro-disabilities, in the country.

Anne added: “All staff and governors are an integral part of this outstanding team.

“The report is a glowing testament to the hard work of everyone at Seashell Trust and we are very proud of the work we do each and every day and that these achievements have been recognised by Ofsted.”

The Ofsted inspectors praised the school for being a happy place to learn, commenting: “We were struck by the warmth of the relationships between staff and pupils.

“The key to the success of your curriculum for your pupils are the meaningful and purposeful and enjoyable learning experiences.”
