Wythenshawe – Station Campaign

We are trying to get 5000 signatures on a petition to get a railway station reinstated at Southmoor Road.  When combined with the tram this will open up transport options across all of Wythenshawe.  It will help to create jobs and allow much easier access to the whole of the UK.  You could be in Manchester in 15 minutes, rather than over an hour on the bus!!! The video below was filmed 2 years ago and summarises the problems people face with local transport. Please add your thoughts and comments below, thanks – Student Council

The Academy’s fastest boys and girls from year 7 took part in the Manchester Great School Sprint athletics event on Friday 9th May.  They competed against 150 pupils from other schools across the city, held at the Manchester Regional Centre.

Miss Saleh said, “The competition was tough, as our pupils were competing in the 60 metre sprint, against city and county level athletes.  But with great strength and determination, 6 of our pupils have made the top 48 through to the next round on Friday 16th May at Deansgate”.

Congratulations to all who took part and good luck to Nicole Proverbs, Kya Whitelock, Lewis Farmer, Luke Eastwood, Gary Da Costa and Troy Whelan who have qualified for Friday’s race.
