    Manor Croft Academy students have raised over 700 hundred pounds by wearing sportswear for the day.

  • Rewards Event - Magic Time!

    21st March 2014

    On Thursday 20th March over 350 Manor Croft Academy students experienced a unique reward event.

    The presentation highlighted to our students that making a career out of something you love is certainly possible!
