It is with absolute pleasure that we welcome Didsbury High School to the DEC family of schools.

DEC at Didsbury is led by none other than wonderful ex St Ambrose Barlow DEC teacher Natalie Taylor, so we know our new students are in excellent hands.

As a beacon for the Built Environment in a world-class city, we wanted to ensure Didsbury High could rely on exemplary support from organisations who can inspire success.

It was an easy choice.

We approached our good friends Renaker who themselves have recruited so many St Ambrose and Cronton College DEC students into Level 4 and 6 apprenticeships in Construction Project Management and Quantity Surveying.

Daren Whitaker, Renaker’s Managing Director, said:

“Here at Renaker, we’re all about identifying young people with the right character and the appropriate experience and knowledge. We’ve certainly found this in DEC students and so are proud and excited to support Didsbury High School as our own adopted DEC school. We look forward to nurturing more great young Manchester talent in the future.”

To complement Renaker’s expertise, we asked Broadway Malyan, an outstanding architectural practice with its own track record of DEC success at London’s Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls, to join them. They jumped at the chance.

Harry Hoodless, Regional Board Director for Broadway Malyan, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Class Of Your Own, supporting Didsbury High School to deliver DEC, and excited to see what challenges our next gen will overcome!”

This excellent collaboration will shine a light on the potential of Manchester children and young people and provide this booming, industrious city with a wealth of exceptional digital DEC talent in just a few short years.

What a fantastic start to the new year for Didsbury High School students!
