Established in 1874, MHSG’s alumnae include suffragette sisters Sylvia, Christabel and Adele Pankhurst through to present day business leaders such as Nicola Mendelsohn, Vice-President of Facebook EMEA.

The school enable girls to enjoy a seamless and settled education from infant years through to the early days of adulthood.

Whatever stage of school life they are at, students find Manchester High a vibrant and stimulating environment, where their classmates and teachers support and encourage them.

The School is committed to developing fulfilled and balanced individuals through diverse extra-curricular activities, and exceptional well-being and careers programmes.

Girls benefit from a wide and varied learning experience that is full of opportunity, and they are challenged and supported to achieve their personal best.

This is a testament to the school’s public examination results which are, year on year, some of the best in the country.

Over a quarter of this year’s A-level cohort secured a string of straight A*s and As, and 87 per cent of all grades were in the A* to B range.

At GCSE, in a year that has seen an increase in the rigour of the exams and a new numerical results system in which fewer top grades were awarded, MSHG pupils certainly came out on top.

83 per cent of all grades achieved by the students were A* to A, or in the 9 to 7 range for those subjects that reported results numerically.

Well over a third of results in both Mathematics (36 per cent) and English Literature (35 per cent) were the new top score of a grade 9.

Almost half of the GCSE year group opted to take Further Mathematics and 100 per cent of the cohort secured either an A* with distinction, an A* or an A.

Students at MHSG enjoy superb, modern facilities including a state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre, extended accommodation for the Preparatory Department and a Sports Complex which complement their learning experience.

The School encourages girls to respect themselves and others; developing responsible global citizens who have a positive impact on the world.

Manchester High welcomes external applications to join its Sixth Form. Their next open event for Senior School and Sixth Form is on Thursday, September 28. Go online for more details:
