Our approach to learning

With a safe, calm learning environment tailored to their specific needs, students can develop and progress to their full potential here at Royal School Manchester. Key to our school’s success is the strength of the relationship our dedicated staff have with each and every child.

Tailored Learning

Our curriculum

Learning at Royal School Manchester is tailored to each child, with their individual needs, strengths and preferences shaping both the way in which they learn as well as their learning environment. Students’ progress is measured against themselves rather than their peers. Each individual child is unique with a personalised set of goals.
