Welcome to Marlborough Road Academy

We are a friendly and caring school at the heart of our community in the Broughton area of Salford. 

With two classes in each year group, as well as a flourishing Nursery, we get to know every child personally. Our mission is to bring out the 'best in everyone' and help each child learn to love school, make friends and gain strong foundations in their learning. 

We are united behind three core values: be safe, choose kind and work hard. We know how important it is that pupils make a positive start to school life and we want them all to feel happy, inspired and supported every day. 

What makes us such a warm and vibrant school is the wonderful mix of cultures, faiths and backgrounds shared by our children, families and staff. As a school we regularly celebrate what makes each of us unique and seek to nurture pupils' special interests, talents and aspirations. 

As well as learning to read and write, we want children to get an 'Education with Character' that gives them the tools and experiences they need to explore the wider world. Through United Learning, we are part of a family of schools across Salford and beyond, which means we are able to provide more of these opportunities than other standalone schools could offer. Most of all, we are proud of our strong relationships with parents and carers. We always seek to work closely with families to ensure each and every child has the right support to flourish. 

Choosing a primary school is a big decision for any family to make - we would encourage you to visit us to see for yourself what we can offer you and your child.
