Engage Motivate Inspire

Welcome to Trafford Alternative Education website. I hope that the information provided gives you an understanding of our school and the principles and vision that support our work

I am truly proud of all students and staff for their continued commitment and hard work.  Trafford High School is a provision which changes lives and I am honoured to be the Executive Headteacher of such an establishment.

In a unique, nurturing, caring and supportive environment, we provide the opportunity for our   students to get back on track, to access education, make progress and change the direction of their lives.

Outcomes for pupils



Following our Ofsted judgement of “Good” Ofsted in November 2016, we have been working hard to improving all areas. We now have in place a cohesive senior leadership team and loyal experienced staff. Together we all promote a shared sense of purpose across the school.   At Trafford High School we know our strengths and areas for development well and the teaching is clearly focused on identifying gaps and raising achievement to show progress over time.

Where possible our aim is to return students to a mainstream.  We will work to ensure the education students receive whilst at Trafford High is tailored to meet their individual needs and designed to give them the skills to improve their life chances. All students have every opportunity to gain accreditation/qualifications for their future

We are ready to work as a team working with parent, carers and outside agencies to transform education and demonstrate to our students that they can be as successful as they want to be.
