Partnerships and Community Links

Withington has a strong track record of public benefit activities and partnerships with our local community and beyond. A primary example of our educational partnership programme is the hugely successful Withington SHiNE Together programme which has offered Saturday morning classes to boys and girls in years 5 and 6 in a range of subject areas for over a decade. We also run smaller programmes with individual schools in subjects such as Science and Classics. 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. Withington has also forged a strong relationship with the University of Manchester and their teacher training programme over many years.

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 and more recently we were named among the ‘Best of the Best’ in The Week in the ‘Great for community’ category.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, many of our projects and partnerships have continued to flourish. Some of our events have been run virtually and this has afforded us the opportunity to adapt our partnerships in new and exciting ways. A summary of our community involvement and other partnership work can be seen on the Independent Schools Council Schools Together website.
