Partnerships and Community Links
As a forward-thinking, outward-looking school, Withington Girls’ School is very proud of our Projects and Partnerships work within our local community and beyond. We have a strong track record of delivering programmes that benefit our own school community and the wider community, local, nationally and internationally.
The main examples of our Educational Partnership programmes include our hugely successful SHiNE Together Saturday morning classes for boys and girls in Years 5 and 6 in a range of subjects, as well as our Science Communicators programme, Jubilee Arts Award and Classics lessons. Numerous staff also continue to occupy Governorship positions, including two Chair of Governors, in both maintained primary and secondary schools across Greater Manchester.
Many of our Partnerships are long-standing, sustained and mutually beneficial and very much built into our whole school ethos of respect for self, respect for others and personal responsibility. We were delighted to be recognised by The Week Schools Guide 2021 as a contender in the category ‘Great for Community’ and were proud to see some of our Partnership work celebrated in the Independent Schools Council Celebrating Partnerships booklet published in November. Our commitment and efforts were also 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.
Our latest partnership audit for the academic year 2022-23 is available below.
