Welcome from our Headteacher

Ashton on Mersey School continues to have a strong partnership with Manchester United Football Club. The Manchester United Schoolboy Scholarship (MANUSS) program is a pathway for talented players to join the club from both near and far, with many players staying with host families. The school works closely with the club to support these young players in securing a high quality education alongside maintaining their statues as elite footballers. For example, MANUSS pupils often have adjusted timetables to accommodate additional training during the school day but receive compensatory education at alternative times.  The alumni for this programme includes the likes of England internationals Marcus Rashford and Jess Lingard   We would like to wish our Year 11 MANUSS Class of 2024 the best of luck for their GCSE examinations and the rest of the cohort with their upcoming end of year assessments.
