Deviation from Wikipedia policies.[edit]

Though the article reads well- there appear to be significant problems in sticking to Wikipedia's policies.

for instance the lead section that reads like advertising copy.

There are guidelines for articles on schools that discuss the tricky problem of neutral language, avoiding advertising comment and independent references.

It would appear that references to Facebook, twitter, stockportgrammar.co.uk and the educationbase.co.uk (a website which schools write their own copy) are dubious- and alternative references need to be found. Obviously isi report hosted on school site is legitimate and some extra references could be taken from this document. Paul Morleys work The North deals well with the lack of social mobility in the FW Scott days. Morley, Paul (2013). The North (and almost everything in it). London: Bloomsbury. pp. 440–477.
