Below you will find just a small selection of the many comments received from parents following the recent Ofsted inspection which rated our school as a 'GOOD' school.

"On 1-2 May 2018 Ofsted inspected The Manor Academy. I wanted you to know that I have read the subsequent report and I was delighted to read its contents - the fact that The Manor Academy is now Ofsted rated "Good" is particularly pleasing, especially when you consider the significant improvement this represents on the previous full Ofsted report.

... I wanted to write to you to express my sincere thanks for the work that you are doing in helping to produce a better learning environment for children at The Manor Academy.

I would be very grateful if you could pass on my thanks to all of the staff who have worked so tirelessly to transform the quality of education since the last section 5 inspection."

Keep up the fantastic work - the results really are a reflection of how brilliant you and your staff are.


"I have had a child at manor since 2012 this is the best Ofsted I've read, well done to all the staff"

"Many congratulations to everyone, very well deserved. My particular thanks to Mr Sully for the commitment and improvements in the sixth form.

Thank you from a grateful parent."

"It’s great to hear this news, well done and thanks for all of your hard work and effort."

"Well done - we can really see a difference in the progress of [our child] and undoubtedly this is due to the focus and drive clearly delivered by Ms Kerry and the teaching staff."

"Well done everyone at manor, great news! Extremely pleased for Mr Sully too - he is a legend among the year 11s also."

"I just wanted to send my congratulations in light of the recent OFSTED grading!!  Fantastic news and well deserved!"

"[My child] was very excited about being able to speak to the Inspectors and again I cannot stress enough how positive it has been for [my child] since starting at the Academy!

Congratulations to you all and wishing you a very restful half term!"

"This is such amazing news!
Mrs Kerry, Mr Gladwin and all the staff and pupils have worked so hard and deserve every lovely comment in this report!

Well done.
Here’s to getting Outstanding next!!!!"

"Well done to all concerned - we have 3 of our Grandchildren there and all 3 are doing very well, thank you!!!!!"
"Well done to all the staff and students at Manor for believing and giving it your all."
"I would just like to say thank you to all the staff involved in the Paris trip !! My son had a fantastic time !! It was his first trip abroad and he's loved the chance to see the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and especially the Stade de France !! I'm sure organising 120 kids abroad was no easy task so thanks again !!"
"Just like to thank the school and the teachers that went [to Paris] for all the hard work they put in. Wrangling 120 kids couldn't have been easy. My son and his friends had a great time and enjoyed everything they did. He said the food was okay and perfectly edible, rooms were fine (certainly better than the YHA room we stayed in on the rugby tour he went on earlier in the year),clean, and the shower worked fine. He hasn't been able to shut up about since he got back. "
"I just wanted to thank you and all the other members of staff for all your hard work organising the trip to Paris. [My child] really enjoyed it and it was a fantastic experience for all."
"I just wanted to take this opportunity to say how impressed I have been so far with the transition package you are offering to the year 6 children in the local area. My daughter is so excited about starting the Manor. What you have done so far has had such a positive impact on her and as a parent I could not ask for anything more. The visits she's had as a pupil, alongside the open evening have really enthused her. I wanted to say a big thank you for the fantastic work you have done so far. I can see how much time and effort is being invested into these children before they even walk through the door."
"Please convey to Emma Rawson and your Management Team my thanks for the excellent welcome and organization for the Assembly this morning (09/05/2019). Also the attention and behaviour of all pupils were excellent."
