It is proposed that Brookway High School and Sports College will be closed on the 31 August 2010 subject to 600 place, co-educational, 11-16 Health Academy being established in its place from 1 September 2010. It is proposed that pupils currently attending Brookway High School and Sports College will be able to transfer automatically to the new Health Academy. However, if parents/carers prefer, admission maybe sort at other schools in the area, subject to the availability of places.

Please note this will not affect the Brookway Community Sports Facility.

A new kind of school is coming to Wythenshawe, one that improves education for all children in the local area. This school will be the Manchester Health Academy which will open its doors to students in September 2010.

The new Academy will offer state-of-the-art facilities and a curriculum and opportunities that will equip students for the 21st century.  The Academy will specialise in health sciences and will work in partnership with local hospitals.
