Year 11 Transition

Here at Saint Paul’s we provide our students with the opportunity of applying to our feeder colleges, Loreto and Xaverian (both Ofsted Outstanding providers). We also have strong relationships with many other excellent providers of FE and apprenticeships both locally and nationwide. Throughout their time at Saint Paul’s, students will have multiple opportunities to visit  FE providers/colleges, attend workshops, road shows and seminars, with guest speakers.

Open Events

Manchester Grammar School

The Manchester Grammar School is holding a Sixth Form Open Evening, 6-8pm, on Thursday 12 November. This event is for boys who display considerable potential at GCSE and wish to pursue academic study at a high level, for example those boys looking to achieve at least a grade 8 in most subjects.

We pride ourselves on the diversity of our school community, having boys from all walks of life. As a selective independent grammar school we have always been committed to educating bright boys, whatever their financial background. With this in mind, although we are a fee-paying school, we also offer means-tested bursary places; we currently have over 200 boys in the School on bursary places, for most of whom no fee is charged at all.

We hope the evening will inform students of the style of assessment we have for entry, as well as the ways in which MGS can help them fulfil their university ambitions.  There will be an opportunity to meet senior members of staff, including the Sixth Form team, as well as hear from current pupils and find out about the range of activities and societies on offer. Any boy wishing to attend the event should contact our Admissions Department (Tel: 0161 224 7201 ext 234, Email:”
