About Manor Church of England Academy
Manor has a proud history, having served the young people of York for over 207 years. We are a Church of England academy in the beautiful historic City of York and our Christian values guide influence and underpin all that we do. We proudly strive to provide a 21st century education for our young people, founded on Christian belief, and carry on the work that the National Society began in the early 19th century.
We are an outstanding academy with a reputation for academic excellence. In 2020, 80% of our students achieved grades 9-4 in English language or literature and maths, 60% achieved grades 9-5 in English language or literature and maths, these results are very high and well above national averages. 53% achieved the English Baccalaureate at grade 4 and above.
In recent years, we have taken on the role of a National Support School and our Teaching School is at the heart of the EborHope Teaching Schools Alliance, training the next generation of teachers. We are also a founder member of the Hope Learning Trust, York, a growing family of schools working together to transform education within Yorkshire and the Humber.
We are blessed to have state-of-the-art facilities and very supportive families. However, our greatest assets are the 1,000 plus amazing young students and the 140 highly gifted teaching and support staff. Our aim is that all students and staff ‘serve others, grow together and live life to the full’. We want to develop compassionate, serving young leaders that work to make their communities and our society a better place, and we try hard to ensure that we keep that in mind in school planning and organisation.
