About The Manor Academy

The Manor Academy situated within the heart of the Mansfield Woodhouse community. The provision for our students is from age 11 to 18.  

Since September 2016 the academy has been part of the Two Counties Trust.

The Manor Academy underwent a full Ofsted Inspection in May 2018 securing a well-deserved “GOOD” rating for overall effectiveness and for all the 4 main categories, including Pupil Outcomes, Teaching & Learning, Behaviour and Leadership of the Academy.   All aspects of the sixth form were also judged to be good.  The Lead Inspector stated that, “the quality of the education has been transformed since the last full inspection”.

It is an exciting time to be working with Manor Academy as both students and staff at the school have worked hard to achieve a rapid rise in outcomes. There is a lot to be proud of at Manor Academy, and the Governors along with all staff hold a common aim to work with students to ensure that the quality of provision and outcomes  improves even further in the future. At Manor Academy, we are very proud of our reputation for the high standards of teaching, behaviour and academic achievement. 

We have high expectations and encourage all students to meet them. All staff support the vision of the Manor Academy which is to ensure that all of our students develop their full range of talents and fulfil their academic potential.

The Manor Academy’s partnerships with specialist organisations and schools gives our students countless opportunities for unique, life-enhancing experiences. Our partnership with The Royal Ballet School, for example, means that our students get access to workshops and classes led by specially trained ballet teachers. 

The facilities at The Manor Academy are second to none; we have our own sports centre, a full-sized all-weather sports pitch, an outstanding cafe offering hot and cold foods, a construction centre and an engineering workshop, a hair and beauty training salon, advanced ICT facilities and a comprehensive library.

Why work at Manor? We, as students, absolutely love being at Manor. Why? Well because we have an amazing relationship with our teachers and peers alike. This in turn creates a nice, motivating working atmosphere for both student and staff. The spirit of British values and democracy echoes throughout the corridors of the academy. With our range of facilities across the school there is always chances to run and attend extra-curricular activities. This, in turn, embellishes that friendly working atmosphere that we value at Manor Academy. In conclusion, we would say that the best thing at Manor is the team working environment and the sense that, to achieve, we must work together. That’s what makes our school a great school.
