Our approach to learning

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

Tailored Learning

Our curriculum

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