Our Mission

At Greater Manchester Independent School, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive, enriching and nurturing environment, where each of our students is seen as capable and all are encouraged to grow to their fullest potential academically, emotionally and socially.

Our mission is to develop, well rounded, confident, independent, responsible and respectful young people who aspire to achieve their full potential. We achieve this by providing a welcoming, happy, safe, encouraging and supportive learning environment to help them flourish. We believe that a happy child is a successful child.

Students at our school are provided with high quality learning experiences based on a broad and balanced curriculum, taught on a “stage, not age” basis. Through this, we aim to nurture a lifelong love of learning in our students.
