Mr Simon Barber, Principal

Principal's welcome to Manor CE Academy

As the Principal of Manor CE Academy I am delighted to introduce our school to you. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. 

Manor has a proud history, having served the young people of York for 205 years. We are a Church of England academy and our Christian values guide, influence and underpin all that we do. We proudly strive to provide a 21st century education for our young people, founded on Christian belief, and carry on the work that the National Society began in the early 19th century.

We are an outstanding academy with a reputation for academic excellence.

In 2016, 69.4% of our students achieved A*-C in English language or literature and maths, 44.3% achieved the English Baccalaureate and our Progress 8 score was +0.26, showing that significant value was added to our students' attainment throughout their time with us.

Recently we have taken on the role of a National Support School and we are at the heart of the Ebor Teaching Schools Alliance, training the next generation of teachers. We are also a founder member of the Hope Learning Trust, a family of schools working together for transforming education in this area.

We are blessed to have state-of-the-art facilities and supportive families, however our most outstanding features are the 1,000-plus amazing young people and the 140 highly gifted teaching and support staff. Our aim is that all students and staff "serve others, grow together and live life to the full".

We want to change the world by developing compassionate, serving leaders that work to make their communities and our society a better place. 

I do hope you enjoy looking at our website and that we might have the opportunity of welcoming you in person at some point in the future.
