Welcome from the

Welcome to Manor Croft Academy

Good morning and welcome to Manor Croft Academy

Manor Croft Academy is a small School situated in Dewsbury West Yorkshire.

We enjoy a wide curriculum and have a full extra curriculum timetable.

This year our academy news team is made up of year 7 students who have shown an interest in media or journalism as a career option.

Our motto is “together we are stronger” and we believe if we all work together we can achieve more, enhance our media skills as well as have a fun day.
