Impact of Our Work

From Saida Hadriz, Man Met Student Ambassador working in the school

I loved spending every second with the students in the classroom, they made me feel very welcomed and appreciated. The environment of the classroom and being around the students and the staff was very calming and comforting. Working as a team with the other staff, made everything so much easier, as everyone was helpful and we all looked out for one another. It was an experience, that I would not forget. How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. 

From Jan Bradburn, Lead for Supplementary Schools, Manchester City Council

Congratulations to the MEaP Twilight School.

They are the first school to be awarded the Manchester Higher Level Achievement Award. Their practice is exemplary in all areas and they should rightfully be proud of their achievement.
