About Clevelands

Looking for an independent school with the perfect environment for your child?

Clevelands enjoys a secure, nurturing environment in an impressive setting for your child to thrive through an independent education. Our independent school for students aged 6 months - 11 years old is housed in a beautiful Victorian building, once the home of a Lancashire businessman. The woodland setting has been developed to give your child wonderful, unforgettable outdoor experiences, ranging from pond dipping to searching for wildlife on a woodland trail.

The location gives your child a supportive, family environment where they will spend each day in an enriched, happy, and caring community, supported by highly qualified, dedicated teachers and support staff who are committed to providing an education that makes a difference. 


Our Mission Statement

At Clevelands we want all children and staff to grow and develop into positive individuals, who achieve through determination, resilience, effort, creativity, mutual-respect, and kindness. We aim to encourage and promote confidence, enthusiasm, and happiness across our school community: to enable everyone to help prepare for a positive future, and to be productive, caring, global citizens, aware of their impact upon both our school and community, and the wider world.


Our Aims

To offer a high-class education, driven through a stimulating and inspiring curriculum that offers equal opportunities for every child to be successful.

We want every child to have the opportunity to realise their fullest potential regardless of starting points and to be equipped with the right values and skills to enable them to grow as individuals and be successful in the competitive world that lies in wait for them.

We want school to be a place of wonder, learning, excitement, creativity, technology, challenge and compassion, where all children thrive, develop and grow in an environment of love and care.

Family values go a long way in private education

Our school’s family values are built on respect and consideration of one another. Friendship, kindness and patience are continually reinforced in the day-to-day life of the school.

It is this approach that has made us one of the most respected independent schools in the Greater Manchester area at both nursery and prep level. At the last inspection the progress and attainment of all children was judged as outstanding.
