Mike Spinks

We are very sorry to announce that Mike Spinks died on Friday 2nd January 2015. Mr Spinks was Principal and Academy Chief Executive of Urmston Grammar for fourteen years; retiring in January 2014. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Mr Spinks will be sadly missed by all who are part of the Urmston Grammar community.

From Monday 12th January, a Book of Condolence for Mr Spinks will be accessible in the school foyer between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm each week day for former students and staff, past and present parents and governors. Please come to the main door and ring the silver bell. We ask that all entries are made in black ink and that both sides of the pages are used. Entries can be as long or as brief as you like, but please do write your name clearly at the end of your message.

If you are unable to come into school during these times before Friday 23rd January 2015, please email your thoughts to the account below and we will transfer them into the Book of Condolence.

 Christmas Charity

Thank you to all who donated gifts for the Key 103 Mission Christmas appeal and helped to make a better Christmas for all children in the Greater Manchester area.

We are delighted that students supported the Save the Children appeal by wearing festive jumpers and participating in the Year 12 'Santa Dash'. Over £1200 has been raised so far - well done!
