We are a popular, progressive and inclusive school located in Ardwick, two miles outside of Manchester City Centre. There is much redevelopment currently taking place in the local area and our school is integral to this regeneration. Many of our children come from our local area however, due to our excellent reputation, many families travel a significant distance to attend Armitage; in fact, 50% of our school population are EAL learners, with children coming from all over the world to be part of our community! We have recently become part of ‘The Aiming High C.E. Federation’, a newly formed group of schools which currently includes ourselves and All Saints Primary in Gorton – it’s only a short drive between the two sites!
