MANOR CE ACADEMY IS PART OF

Our Prospectus

Manor Church of England Academy is an 11-16 voluntary aided secondary school serving the north-west of York.

We aim for excellence in all we do. We want to see young people reach their potential and develop into mature, confident adults. 

Manor is committed to providing exciting learning that captures students’ imaginations and helps them to develop a life-long curiosity and passion for study. 

We do this in a Christian environment, where all young people are cared for, shown respect and given opportunities to serve others.

We have a reputation for high academic performance. Our Key Stage 4 results place us in the top ten per cent of schools nationally and we were the first school in York to be commended by Ofsted as a “particularly successful school.”

Serving others 

As a Church of England academy we have a very special relationship with the Church of the Holy Redeemer. Our chaplain, the Reverend Tony Hand, is an integral part of this partnership and of our community.

We make every effort to live out the faith we confess. Our acts of collective worship include a Eucharist service each term. Students experience prayer, readings, music and meditation and take Religious Studies up to GCSE.

We aim to be at the heart of the local community and our students engage in valuable community work, for example through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the Archbishop of York Youth Trust’s Young Leaders Award.

Growing together

How we treat each other is as important as our academic performance. We have seven values, taken from the Hebrew scriptures, which advocate that all students and staff should be compassionate, gracious, patient, kind, loyal, forgiving and just.

Our pastoral system targets the individual needs of every student, who are each supported by a tutor and a Year Leader. We want them to feel safe and secure in our care and to leave Manor as confident young adults, ready for the next stage of their journey in life.

Living life to the full

We aim to engage young people in learning that captures their imagination. Each student is unique and each deserves a curriculum that meets their needs and helps them to become independent learners.

Ofsted recognised the high quality of teaching at Manor, with five times the national average of lessons deemed “outstanding”. Our staff develop their teaching skills continually and share best practice.

Facilities of the future

Our 21st century facilities are built for 21st century teaching and learning. Available to the whole community, these include:

  • A 400-seat auditorium and theatre
  • A creative media centre featuring a 200-seat theatre
  • Dance and drama studios
  • Music facilities
  • Five design technology rooms
  • Two art rooms
  • Seven science laboratories and prep rooms
  • A sports hall, fitness centre, floodlit all-weather outdoor surface and four tennis courts
  • Three ICT rooms and a Learning Resource Centre
  • Learning Support Centre.

Parent partnerships

Parents support Manor through fundraising and organising special events such as the Christmas Fayre. They are always welcome at the parent-teacher group, Manor PTA.

The world’s a stage

The performing arts, music, dance and drama, are an intrinsic part of every student’s experience at both Key Stages 3 and 4.

In addition, students can choose from a wide range of dance, drama and music groups. Performance opportunities include concerts, festivals and school productions.

Our performing arts facilities are industry standard and include The Hive, a creative media centre featuring a 200-seat purpose-built theatre, rehearsal, conference and dance studios. 

Many of our students develop a passion for performance and some pursue a career in the performing arts.
