Please see the Trafford Local Offer links and videos below for details of services, workshops and information that you may find useful throughout the course of the year and during the current lockdown period.

COVID19 Lockdown - During this time, we continue to provide a quality education through our Home Learning Offer which is accessible to all of our learners via their class webpages and is updated daily. Keep up-to-date and in touch with us via our class webpages, class emails and the pastoral and feedback calls from the teaching team. A big thanks to everyone for their ongoing support and engagement.
