Letter to Parents/Carers from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)
Plans for September 2018
This morning we conducted the first test of our Lockdown procedure. We would like to commend the students for their behaviour during this test. The students behaved in an extremely mature way.
Dear Students and Parents/Carers
As the hot weather looks set to continue we will continue with our summer dress code for students. I was delighted on Wednesday, following Sports day, that students did respond so positively to this. As a reminder:
Week beginning 02.07.18: Students do not need their blazers and ties. They can to choose to wear their regular white shirt or their official PE top – no football shirts please. Regular school trousers or skirts as normal.
Week beginning 09.07.18: This is enrichment week and students will be made aware of what they need to wear each day depending on the activities they are taking part in.
Week beginning 16.07.18: We will continue with our summer dress code for the final week of term.
As always many thanks for your support
Guidance for Students and Parents
On Thursday 28th June, over one hundred Bramhall High School and Ladybrook Primary School students joined forces to produce an absolutely fantastic music concert. The quality of our Senior Orchestra, Intermediate Orchestra, Vocal Ensemble, Swing Band, String Group and Rock Bands is a testament to the talent and dedication of all the musicians involved as well as the incredible support from parents and teachers alike.
Our departing year eleven musicians were excellent as always. Thank you to all of you for your fantastic contribution to music at Bramhall High School over the last five years. We hope that you have enjoyed your time here and that you have been inspired to continue with your music now that you have left us. We wish you all the best of luck for the future and we would love to see you again at our next big concert.

Our continuing position as a ‘Hallé Partnership School’ has provided Bramhall High School students with yet another outstanding musical experience. On Tuesday 19th June, our musicians performed alongside The Halle Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall in what was a thoroughly enjoyable concert. Well done to all of the students who took part and thank you to everyone who made it possible.

Five members of the Bramhall High School Indoor Rowing team received letters from British Rowing this week to inform them that they had been chosen for the England North squad to compete in the Schools Games National Finals.
Lola, Myles, Fraser, Harry and Tom will travel down to Loughborough University to take part in the Games from August 30th to September 2nd.
The School Games is a multi-sport event with 1400 competitors from all over the UK taking part in 11 sports. Our rowers will be part of a two day Indoor Rowing event featuring individual and team racing between the England North and England South squads.
British Rowing identified our rowers by their ‘impressive rowing results’ in the Greater Manchester Championships held at the Armitage Centre in February.
All five have already confirmed their availability. We are already planning our training programme for the summer holidays!
We were delighted to receive our formal OfSTED report following our monitoring inspection, carried out by Anne Seneviratne, a highly regarded HMI (Her Majesty’s Inspector.) The report clearly identifies that our school is in a very strong position at the time of this inspection. The HMI focused on the work of all leaders with responsibilities here at Bramhall and it is clear leadership has further improved from our ‘good’ grading since the last inspection (March 2017) with Anne reporting:
‘At the last inspection, the effectiveness of leadership and management was judged to be good. The leadership of the school has been strengthened even further in the last 12 months. As headteacher you continue to lead the school very effectively. Governors and the local authority have complete confidence in your leadership with Governors continuing to provide effective support and challenge. You have galvanised the whole school community. It is clear that you have the support of staff, pupils and parents, who value what you are doing to improve the school. You are ably supported by a strong leadership team who work in a coherent and purposeful manner and their actions have a positive impact on pupils’ progress.’
Over the last 12 months we have put plans in place to ensure that Bramhall High School is ‘officially’ recognised as the ‘Good and Outstanding ’ school that it is.
