A message from our Progress Leaders to our students

In lieu of in-school assemblies this week, our Progress Leaders have put together a virtual assembly to touch base with students and set a challenge. Please watch the video below.

Work.World.Wellness. activities

Students have been participating in a number of activities during the school closure as part of our Work.World.Wellness. curriculum. These have included Earth Hour and International Golden Rule Day. You can download overviews of what our students got up to for these events below.

There are more event days taking place this month which we will be encouraging students to participate in. Be sure to check back on this page for updates.

Students perform with BBC Symphony Orchestra

A selection of musicians from across all Key Stages received expert musical tuition from members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Choir on Tuesday 10 March.

Joined by students from St Peter's CE Academy and Stanwick Primary, students spent the day working with the orchestra and choir on three pieces of music before performing to parents/carers and staff at the end of the day. The choir opened the performance with a four-part song titled "Great Day" before combining with the instrumentalists for "May It Be" from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The performance was concluded with "Dies Irae" from Verdi's Requiem.

The students are due to give a repeat performance as part of our Music Showcase later this month.

National Careers Week 2020

National Careers Week 2020 is taking place from Monday 2 March to Friday 6 March, and Manor School has plenty in store for students to help prepare them for the world of work.

There will be an assembly for each year group informing them of what National Careers Week is, how we are participating and what support is available. There will also be an activity during Wednesday's Work.World.Wellness. lesson linked to the event. In addition to this, staff will be wearing cards on their lanyards that state what previous jobs they have had or what special skills they have.

Students can find lots of advice and guidance on our careers pages, as well as the following external websites:
