Ofsted Report - Burnage Academy for Boys 2018. Rated Outstanding

“Leaders ensure that pupils have a strong voice in the running of their school. For example, all pupils are expected to contribute to the work of the school council.

Small groups undertake activities in response to priorities recommended and voted on by pupils. Similarly, some of the clubs offered by the school are run by pupils as a service to others”
