About Knutsford Multi Academy Trust
Knutsford Academy provides secondary education to over 1200 students aged from 11 to 18 in the historic town of Knutsford, less than 20 miles from the centre of Manchester and minutes from the M6 motorway. Students arrive in Year 7 from the local primary schools in Knutsford and we also attract a number of students from the south Manchester and Northwich areas. The school formed in 1953 as Knutsford High School and still operates from the original site in the centre of the town, it transferred to Academy status in 2012.
The school has a thriving Sixth Form and over the last four years has achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level which has seen a large number of students progressing to Russell Group universities. At GCSE, in the summer of 2018 80% all grades were at 4 or above and 25% of all grades at 7 or above with an overall improving progress 8 score.
Our focus is driven by our three core values:
Academic Excellence - We provide a supportive and challenging environment to ensure our students achieve academic excellence at Knutsford Academy.
Strong Community - We draw on the strength of our community within Knutsford Academy and work with our local community around Knutsford.
World Class Opportunities - We aim to prepare our students for life beyond school by providing world class opportunities.
