The Children of Success Schools Trust  was established in March 2013 to formalise the relationship between The Willows Primary School and Haveley Hey Community School in a multi-academy trust .

The academy is supported by Manchester Grammar School as a strong educational partner and has growing links with Manchester Enterprise Academy.  It works closely with Place2be, a charity whose focus is on therapeutic and emotional support in schools.  It is a founder member of the Manchester Schools Alliance.

With a strong Board of Trustees the trust has achieved an efficient transition to academy status for the two schools and has sown the seeds of wider development through the purchase of a community building next to Haveley Hey School now known as The Bridge. With the support of Manchester City Council the Trust has opened a two year old provision at The Bridge which is flourishing and preparing disadvantaged children for school.

Significant change in the senior management team has been delivered following the retirement of the Executive Head in 2014, with the recruitment of a Headteacher for each school and a Finance Director and Operations Manager.  Together the Board and executive team are driving the Trust to improve outcomes for children in an area of deprivation and high levels of need with the support of our community.
