BBC School Report 2015


Welcome from the

MCA News Team

Welcome to Manor Croft Academy.

Manor Croft Academy is situated in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. The Academy was established in September 2013 to cater for 11 to 16 year old young people of the area. We enjoy a wide curriculum and have a full extra curriculum timetable .

One of the extra curriculum activities is our recently established News Team, made up of Year 7 and 8 students.  Our club runs every Tuesday during lunchtime in the library. Recently we have been developing our skills, learning how to select newsworthy items, conduct interviews  as well as editing and publishing news reports.
