10 Years of Connell

2023 is our 10th anniversary year!

We’ll be celebrating throughout the year by sharing memories and pictures from the past 10 years. We’ll also be profiling 10 feeder schools and 10 partners. 

Make sure you follow our social media channels to see these updates (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – #10YearsOfConnell).

We’re planning a celebratory event for later in the year. More details coming soon…

Calling all Alumni

We want former students and staff to share their photos, videos and memories with us. Send them to comms@connell.ac.uk.

10 feeder schools

Cedar Mount Academy

Our first #10YearsOfConnell feeder school to profile is Cedar Mount Academy in Gorton. The school opened in 2000 (as Cedar Mount High School) and became an academy in 2012. 

Cedar Mount Academy celebrates and supports its community. They want their students to be the best version of themselves and leave them as happy, caring and knowledgeable young people. Their values are hard work, aspiration and respect. 

They offer a knowledge rich curriculum that supports their inclusive community and offers equity of opportunity to all. Every student’s aim is to be a little bit better tomorrow than they are today – meeting that challenge enables their students to become the scholars they want them to be.
