Welcome to Manor Croft Academy

 

Our Academy is an exciting place to learn and we are committed to delivering a high quality education for all our students.  At Manor Croft Academy we believe that our core purpose is to prepare young people to enter a fast moving and rapidly changing environment.  To prepare them for such a challenge we work to develop their skills, knowledge and resilience which in turn will enable them to achieve the highest possible qualifications. 

Manor Croft Academy also works with the students to ensure that they learn in a happy and caring environment.  Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic achievement all students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra curricular activities outside the classroom.  It is essential for our success to maintain high standards at all times and this is only possible with collaboration between staff, parents and students.  Our challenge is to provide the global education that gives our students the tools necessary to compete in the world market and by working together we can do this.  Read More

We take the well being and safety of our students very seriously, if you are worried about a child please contact the school immediately. We work very closely with the Kirklees Safeguarding Children's Board to ensure that all our policies and procedures are to a high standard. If you have any general enquiries around safeguarding and the facilities available in Kirklees please follow this link: Kirklees Safeguarding Children Board

I look forward to the opportunity of meeting and working with you to ensure your child receives the best possible chance of achieving their full potential.

Andy Barnett

Principal
