“Salford City Academy prepares you for your future.”

Professor Diana Kloss, Former SCA Governor
“The ‘Good’ judgement from Ofsted is testament to the dedication and ambition of all staff and students. The report clearly demonstrates how far the school has come since its last inspection and, with solid foundations in teaching and learning now in place, the academy is well positioned to aim for even higher quality, outstanding practice.”
Janet Woods, Director of Northern Academies, United Learning
“My best day at Salford City Academy was my first one as I met teachers and new people that
became my friends later on.”
Jordanne, Year 7 student
"From the outset, nothing was too much trouble and all the staff made us feel so welcome. It was more like being part of your school rather than just visitors. The pupils and staff were a credit and showed the team 100% respect. Your team are a credit with what they are doing with today's young. It was so nice to have lunch with the pupils and to be thanked by so many of the young people for coming into their school.”
Officer Dog Handler Paul McGovern M.B.E, H.M.P Manchester
“I think that every pupil is unique in their own way and the academy helps show that.”
Jazmin, Year 7
"It was so good of you to bring your young people and to encourage them to take part in the Remembrance Service. It makes such a difference when the veterans see young people attending and being interested; it makes them feel that what they've been through is appreciated by the next generation. I hope that you will have the opportunity to explain to the young people who were present at the service that the fact that they came is greatly valued.”
Joan Seed, Chair of Churches Together in Eccles
“The academy offers a lot of opportunities to boost your confidence.”
Jack, Year 11 student
"It was a super visit for which many thanks. Our time with the students was terrific. They were the best possible advertisement for what has been achieved and you deserve excellent results."
Sir Michael Graydon, Chair of the Group Board, United Learning
“Thank you for inviting Trafford College to the Careers Fair. All the pupils were so polite and interested in the event, and asked really good questions.”
