Thank you for investigating The Macclesfield Academy as an option for your child. As a parent myself, I fully understand that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. In Macclesfield, we are unusually fortunate in having four excellent schools to choose from. However, each has its own special flavour: the things that make it a special place to learn, work and play. We would encourage parents to visit as many schools as they can to find out what is special about each and consider where their child would fit best. At the Academy, we believe that as a small school with a very particular family atmosphere, three things distinguish us from other schools and underpin the remarkable progress that our students make: our welcoming community, our personalised curriculum and our enriched experience. Please read our prospectus and look at the other information on the website to see what we mean. Even better, please come and see us in action. Here at the Academy, we say that “every day is an open day” and prospective parents are welcome to make an appointment to come and see our staff and students at work on any day of the school year.

I look forward to meeting you.
