Year 6 into 7 Open Evening

We would like to formally invite prospective students and their families to our Year 6 into 7 Open Evening on Wednesday 6 October 2021.

The evening will give you the opportunity to meet, and listen to, the Co-Principals – Glenn Martin and Lee Towers. To ensure that everyone can hear the presentations, they will take place regularly throughout the evening starting at 4:30pm with the final one at 7:00pm.

Following each presentation, guided tours will visit each of the subject areas and provide you with the chance to talk to our students and staff team about the curriculum, extra-curricular activities and all the opportunities that Manor School has to offer. There will also be the opportunity to talk to our pastoral and inclusion team about the school structure and pastoral care within the school. A copy of our Manor School prospectus with further information will be available on the evening.

To avoid disappointment, and to allow the school the opportunity to manage numbers on the school site, we would request that all families reserve their places at the Open Evening in advance of the evening by booking tickets – click here to book your place(s). The booking form will give you the opportunity to select your slot at the presentation and subsequent guided tour of the school. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before the time stated and allow plenty of time for parking. We are expecting high demand for places throughout the evening, and we do have limited parking spaces on site. Where possible, we are requesting that families walk to the school.

We are also offering families the opportunity to visit the school during the day for a tour with one, or both, of the Co-Principals. These will take place every Friday from Friday 1 October 2021 between 11:00am-12:00pm. To book onto a tour, please contact Mrs Natalie Bannard at or call the school on 01933 623921.

We are confident that Manor School has much to offer your child and that we provide the necessary experiences, challenge and support to help all our students develop the personal characteristics and skills required to succeed in an ever-changing world.

Please do come along and see for yourself why Manor School is so unique.

We look forward to seeing you.

Manor School students shine on GCSE Results Day

Manor School would like to congratulate the Class of 2021on their fabulous results.

The exceptional outcomes achieved today, by individuals and subjects across the school, reflect the robust and rigorous assessments that they completed throughout their course. Despite the last two years being fragmented by school closures and remote learning, we are proud of the knowledge and skills that have been demonstrated by these students.

Results achieved by students are a testament to their hard work, dedication and commitment to their studies over their entire five years of study during their time at Manor School.

Chris Hill, CEO of the Nene Education Trust, commented “The progress and achievements of this cohort of students is testament to the investment that Manor School and Nene Education Trust are making at Manor. The students joining the Manor Sixth Form will have an exceptional experience.”

Prospective applicants to the Sixth From can still get in touch by contacting the school by emailing Mr Carter () at any time, or phoning the school on 01933 623921 from Tuesday 1st September onwards.

Manor School Sixth Form students heading for prestigious destinations

Manor School students are set to attend some of the most selective academic institutions after achieving outstanding results.

The recent investment in facilities, resources, leadership and curriculum is continuing to pay dividends. Of the awarded grades, 32% of grades were A*/A. All students who applied for a university course have been offered their first-choice destination.

Darren Carter, Assistant Principal, said “In what has been an extraordinarily challenging year, our students have once again shown resilience and aspiration in overcoming the hurdles put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although students did not have the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and understanding in final examinations, the significant evidence used to determine their grades released today are testament to their hard work and tremendous effort over their seven-year journey in secondary education. We acknowledge the continued support from parents and carers and the dedication and commitment from all of our staff.”

Amongst these, stand out performances worthy of recognition include:

  • Rachel Frazer (A* A* A* B) who is going to study biomedical science at the University of Warwick
  • Izabel Turiccki (A* A* A* A B) who is going to study mathematics at Durham University
  • Georgie Reece-Minutolo (A* A A) who is going to study biomedical science at Oxford University
  • Cassie Down (Dist* A* A) who is going to study forensic psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Daniel Travers (A* A A A) who is going to study chemical engineering at Manchester University
  • Lucy Kirbyshire (A* A A A) who is going to study politics and international relations at Birmingham University

Chris Hill, CEO of the Nene Education Trust, commented “The achievements of this cohort of students are quite remarkable considering the disruption to education during the last two years. My thanks to all the staff at Manor School for providing a positive environment for learning to flourish despite the challenges of the pandemic. The Sixth Form at Manor School is an exciting place to be.”

Prospective applicants to the Sixth From can still get in touch by contacting the school by emailing Mr Carter () at any time, or phoning the school on 01933 623921 from Thursday 2 September onwards.
