Thank you for taking the time to find out more information about Manor College, the Academy’s Sixth Form provision. Our principal aim is to support all post 16 students to achieve their best possible academic results and to facilitate their progress into future employment, apprenticeships or Higher Education. We offer a variety of courses from traditional A Levels to BTEC Vocational qualifications. The subjects are all taught by dedicated specialists, who are passionate about their teaching. Students are supported by Post 16 tutors and the Head of Sixth Form. Students all participate in a full programme of information, advice and guidance with regard to career and University ambitions.
Manor College students enjoy their own dedicated facility and have access to study, computer and social areas. Students also have full access to the facilities of the Manor Academy, which has its own sports centre and fitness suite, a full sized artificial turf sports pitch, café & restaurant, an engineering work shop and a comprehensive library.
As well as completing academic courses, you can take part in a wider programme of study which includes volunteering, an extended project qualification and work related learning. Students will be offered advice and guidance with regard to careers and university applications through a programme of careers interviews, presentations, visits and workshops.
In 2017, we celebrated examination results which showed that students achieved higher than expectations for the fifth year in a row. All students achieved places at university or in employment. In 2016, examination results placed Manor College as the second highest in the Mansfield area in terms of value added (figures for 2017 are not yet available). Some subjects were independently analysed as being among the top 10% in the country for students’ value added.
Manor College recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of its students and ensures that relevant and effective safeguarding practices exist and are actively promoted within the College. Where concerns are raised about students’ safety or well-being we will do our best to help and support them, but there might be situations where we may need to pass these concerns onto the local Children’s Services Department and appropriate external agencies for consideration and support.
We are all governed by the DFE document: Keeping children safe in education – Statutory guidance for schools and colleges – Sept 2016
This document contains information on what schools and colleges should do and sets out the legal duties with which schools and colleges must comply in order to keep children safe.
If you are concerned about the safeguarding of any students within the academy you should report this to Mrs Meredith (Designated Lead Safeguarding Officer – [email protected]). The other trained safeguarding officers within the academy are Mrs Kerry (Head of School) , Miss Rawson (Head of Year) and Mrs Redfearn (Head of Year).
If you have an allegation against any member of staff, this should be reported directly to Mrs Kerry ([email protected]).
All Manor College Students are issued with an Access Controlled ID badge, which allows them to use access controlled pedestrian gates at certain times of day (Manor College Students are allowed off site at lunchtime). This Access Control system is linked to a Paxton Attendance system which allows the Academy to quickly and easily see - in realtime - which students are on or off site.
All visitors to the Academy must be signed in at reception and issued with a Safeguarding Manual and Visitors pass.
