About Us

Marlborough Road Academy is part of the United Learning group of schools. We are a two form entry primary school situated in Higher Broughton in Salford. Being just a five minute journey from Manchester City Centre and the BBC MediaCity, we take advantage of this position to enhance children’s learning by arranging a variety of trips and visits. Children have had a number of opportunities to take part in BBC children’s shows.

Ours is a diverse community. Pupils have a wide range of backgrounds and 45 different languages are spoken. The school is situated in an area of high deprivation with 61% of our children on free school meals. We have a high level of mobility and the school is organised to manage the impact of this.

Our children enter Nursery well below age related expectation, but with a full time Nursery provision, we have a very positive impact on children’s learning and their start in school.

One of the great pleasures of working at Marlborough Road, is that you know that what you do can make a real difference to children’s learning. Although it can be difficult to work with all the challenges that the children face it can be incredibly rewarding.
