About Us

Hapurhey Alternative Provision School

Our school has been operational since 2011 in various guises, before registering as an Alternative Provision School with the Department for Education from September 2015. In September 2024 HAPS became part of Greater Manchester Education Partnership

HAPS caters for students of secondary education age who may be finding the routines of a mainstream secondary environment challenging. We are commissioned predominantly by North Manchester Secondary Schools to offer something different for these students. We strive to engage and re-engage students and families into enjoying their education.

I wish I had known how good HAPS was going to be for me when I joined. Now I have been here and completed my GCSE’s I understand just how much they have helped me.
