Who we are

The Manchester Schools’ Alliance (MSA) is a partnership body, maintained and led by and for all Manchester schools. It is as an independent organisation focused on school priorities and self-improvement.

The core principles of the MSA are cooperation, collaboration and reciprocity. We believe that with this ethic and strong strategic connectivity the education system as a whole can best support its constituent parts in an increasingly fragmented landscape. Amongst many other things we will be better placed to commission and support shared improvement aims and activity, represent ourselves locally, and nationally in collaborative discussion with Central Government, and maximise benefits from engagement with the exciting cultural and economic opportunities in the city.
