Partnerships and Community Links
This section provides a flavour of the School’s public benefit activities and partnerships with our local community and beyond. A summary of our community involvement and other partnership work can be seen on the Independent Schools Council Schools Together website.
Withington has a strong track record of delivering programmes that benefit both our own school community
and children attending local maintained schools. A primary example of our educational partnership programme is the hugely successful Withington SHiNE programme which has offered Saturday morning classes to boys and girls in years 5 and 6 in a range of subject areas for 12 years. We also run smaller programmes with individual schools in subjects such as Science and Classics.
Governorships, shared guest speaker lectures, shared facilities, workshops on university applications and hosting senior citizens for various events are other areas of partnership work which extend beyond our work with primary schools.
Withington has also forged a strong relationship with the University of Manchester and their teacher training
programme over many years.
Links with communities and schools in The Gambia and Uganda have been supported, since 2004 and 2013 respectively, with funding and visits focused on providing practical help by both students and staff.
Our whole school Citizenship Day in July is a yearly reminder to the entire school community of our commitment to our partnerships work, but this work extends across the year and we continue to think of ways we can best serve our local and international community.
Our commitment and efforts were recognised in 2019 when we were named as a finalist in the ‘School in the Community’ category of the MEN’s Greater Manchester School Awards.
