General Information about Admissions to the Academy


William Hulme's Grammar School became a City Academy in September 2007.

We are an age 3 - 18 Academy. Places are allocated strictly in line with our published admissions policy. The school is funded directly by the Government and fees are no longer payable.

The school is part of the Manchester Local Authority's Co-ordinated Admissions scheme and offers places to boys and girls of all abilities. Applications for Year 7 and Reception places are made through the child's home Local Authority. Nursery (pre-school) and Sixth form applications are  made directly to the school.

We are proud to say that William Hulme's is the most popular secondary school in the Greater Manchester area. You maylike to read the article published in The Manchester Evening News which is based on last year's admissions for Year7.
