About Manchester Mesivta School
Located in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, Manchester Mesivta School is an Orthodox Jewish secondary school for boys. A voluntary-aided school, it was originally founded as an independent fee-paying school, but in 2004 became state-aided. The school has 204 pupils aged 11-18, making it much smaller than the average secondary school. The school moved onto its current site in 2005, and as a result can boast of a wide range of teaching and recreational facilities, including modern classrooms, as well as a number of extra-curricular activities.
Values and Vision
Manchester Mesivta School provides both a faith-based and secular education for its students. The school follows two programmes of learning. A high level of Religious Education in the mornings and a wide range of secular education in accordance with the national curriculum in the afternoons. Post-16, students often progress into an independent on-site sixth form college.
“Pupils achieve well. The proportion gaining five good GCSEs is now above average. This reflects good progress given pupils’ broadly average starting points in Year 7. Teachers plan lessons which interest and motivate pupils. Relationships between teachers and pupils are good. Pupils are confident and keen to learn. Pupils are friendly, courteous and considerate. They have a good understanding of British values and all understand the importance of respect and tolerance.”
