The Manor Academy
The Manor Academy is an open, forward thinking, innovative academy offering state-of-the-art facilities, high standards of education, a trailblazing curriculum and an upbeat learning environment for all students.
Our 2012 investment of half-a-million-pounds in a new Wi-Fi network at the Academy is benefiting both staff and students as they are now able to learn in and out of the classroom and can access learning materials at any given time. In 2014, all students were provided their own iPads which allows for fun and revolutionary learning during the school day, and supports with homework and teacher/student communication after the school day has finished.
The Manor Academy’s partnerships with specialist organisations and schools gives our students countless opportunities for unique, life-enhancing experiences. Our partnership with The Royal Ballet School, for example, means that our students get access to workshops and classes led by specially trained ballet teachers. Our international links with Jin Cai High School in Shanghai means that all students have the opportunity of a once-in-a-lifetime trip to China and to learn Mandarin.
The facilities at The Manor Academy are second to none; all students are provided their own iPad, we have our own sports centre, a full-sized all-weather sports pitch, an outstanding cafe offering hot and cold foods, a construction centre and an engineering workshop, a hair and beauty training salon, advanced ICT facilities and a comprehensive library.
