  • Careers Event - Year 10 Mock Interviews

    10th July 2014

    Year 10 students had their first real test with regards to interview pressure this week.

    Each student was tasked with trying to perform under pressure. Appointment times were given, advice into conduct and best practice offered, yet it was down to their own self confidence to perform.

    The students performed brilliantly. 95% turned up on time and suitably dressed in suits and dresses. We hope this experience will help them build confidence for the post 16 interviews that are just around the corner.

    4th June 2014

    Mr Crosby’s Year 8 students have been proving themselves as top writers in recent English lessons. The students entered a Mini Sagas competition, writing stories based around scenes from the film Jurassic Park. The catch though, was that they could only write a maximum of 100 words, meaning that real skill was required in order to relay the tension and atmosphere of the piece!

    As a result of their entries, 18 of the students received a letter back from the competition organisers, informing them that their wo

  • Sports Relief - Over 700 pounds raised!

    21st March 2014

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

The PE department have been working with all students in lessons to ensure they have had the opportunity to ‘run a mile’ for the Sports Relief campaign.

    Well done to all that took part. Special thanks go to Mr Verity, Mr Dawson, Mr White, Mi

  • Rewards Event - Magic Time!

    21st March 2014

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

    Sam Fitton kindly agreed to shun the corporate hospitality circuit so he could inspire our students into a career that may not be on their usual ‘maybe I could do’ list. With the art of distraction Sam managed to stun the audience into silence, time and time again.

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