Link with Nawaikoke College, Africa

The Manchester Grammar School has been in partnership with Nawaikoke College, Uganda - in conjunction with St Peter's Hale - since 1986. The Manchester Grammar School raises awareness and money among its pupils via school discos (alongside the Girls' schools in Manchester). Boys collect old books and recycle these to take to Nawaikoke College.
