Making Manor Memories

We think you’d all agree, being part of Manor is very special. Our school is a fun, vibrant place to be where great emphasis is always placed on quality learning experiences to enhance our education, our identity and our well-being. Each and every year, all of our children benefit from a wide range of educational visits and workshops that enhances their learning. We are pleased to share with you our extension of this through the new ‘Making Manor Memories’ initiative – a mapped out (though not limited to) provision of the experiences all children will have each year during their time at Manor.

These have been devised by the staff and the school’s excellent Children’s Leadership Team. In addition to these experiences the children will continue to visit an art gallery, a museum and a place of worship each year as part of the curriculum units. A range of visitors will be invited into school, including authors and other interesting people; there will also be professional performances in school for the children to watch.

Here’s to making many more Manor Memories together…
