About Hanley School
Welcome from the Headteacher
Here at Aurora Hanley, we know that every young person deserves the opportunity to succeed.
That is why we endeavour to provide an inclusive learning environment for all our students to enjoy, thrive and grow throughout their academic career.
By the time they leave us, every student is on their way to achieving their own goals – whether that is by developing vital life skills, or gaining specific academic and vocational qualifications.
We believe that by providing the right support and building positive relationships, we can support everyone to access opportunities that have previously been denied.
I look forward to welcoming you into the Aurora Hanley community soon.
Julie Martin, Headteacher, Aurora Hanley
Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the Aurora Hanley School family.
We pride ourselves on being a warm, open and friendly environment in which young people flourish. We are recognised as an outstanding provision, not just for the education delivered but for the social experience, emotional coaching and life skills development provided.
We are also a sister school to our newly opened Summerfields school in Cheshire. Both schools reflect our belief that all our unique individuals need to feel accepted, understood, listened to and supported to achieve lifelong learning.
To be prepared, not just academically, but socially and emotionally for the challenges that life brings. I hope that you enjoy your time with us and the journey you are about to undertake.
Tracy Whitehurst, Principal, Aurora Hanley and Aurora Summerfields
