Meet the Principal

Principal with children

 My name is Peter Mulholland and I am Principal at William Hulme's Grammar School. I came to the Academy in 2008. 

A unique school

I am proud that William's Hulme's Grammar School is the most popular primary and secondary school in Greater Manchester. It is a unique school, educating children and young people from the age of 3 to 18 on one school site. William Hulme's has a strong tradition as a successful independent school and is now at the forefront of educational change as a ULT academy with high aspirations for all our students.


My background

I studied History at Oxford University from 1983 to 1986 and then made the decision to apply for a teacher training post-graduate course at Didsbury School of Education. It is a decision that I have never regretted and I have been teaching for 25 years in the north-west of England working in a range of schools from a comprehensive to two high achieving grammar schools. I am in my sixth year as Principal at William Hulme's and I am still enjoying it immensely. I am married with three young children and understand fully the demands on parents and the high expectations we have for our children.

Our vision for the future

At William Hulme's, we believe in the ‘best in everyone' and aim to achieve this by combining the best of the independent and state sectors. We want to work closely with parents and the wider community in our bid to achieve this ambitious aim.
