Headteacher's Welcome

kke thumbnailMy name is Katrina Kerry and I am Head Teacher of The Manor Academy,a forward thinking secondary academy based in Mansfield Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire.

I qualified to teach in 2004 and was excited to join the teaching team at Manor. I had decided that supporting teenagers throughout their education was something I felt very passionate about, not just with academic learning in subjects, but also with the development of the whole child, leading to them achieving success in life. As a mother of two children of my own, I always reflect on decision I make in school and try to make the right choices morally; if its not good enough for my own children, why should it be good enough for anyone else’s?

Manor Academy is part of the Mansfield Woodhouse community, and today we are a successful, Ofsted accredited “good” school, providing high quality education for students from 11 to 19 years old.

Through challenging aspirations, we develop high-achieving young people in a caring environment. Our inspirational curriculum provides an education which promotes happiness, equality, individual student voice and academic progress, ensuring excellent learning and success for all students.

With our strong core values, broad and balanced curriculum, expert teaching staff, excellent pastoral care, strong leadership and first-class facilities, Manor Academy really is an environment in which children thrive.

Staff are committed to supporting every student as they develop into young adults. Ofsted have recently praised the quality of teaching and learning and our dedication to maximise achievement and improve the life chances of all students in our academy. The Sixth Form provision was also highly praised.

Places are still available in the Sixth Form. Please explore our website and do contact us should you wish to find out more about The Manor Academy.
