Manor School students shine on GCSE Results Day

Manor School would like to congratulate the Class of 2021on their fabulous results.

The exceptional outcomes achieved today, by individuals and subjects across the school, reflect the robust and rigorous assessments that they completed throughout their course. Despite the last two years being fragmented by school closures and remote learning, we are proud of the knowledge and skills that have been demonstrated by these students.

Results achieved by students are a testament to their hard work, dedication and commitment to their studies over their entire five years of study during their time at Manor School.

Chris Hill, CEO of the Nene Education Trust, commented “The progress and achievements of this cohort of students is testament to the investment that Manor School and Nene Education Trust are making at Manor. The students joining the Manor Sixth Form will have an exceptional experience.”

Prospective applicants to the Sixth From can still get in touch by contacting the school by emailing Mr Carter () at any time, or phoning the school on 01933 623921 from Tuesday 1st September onwards.

Manor School Sixth Form students heading for prestigious destinations

Manor School students are set to attend some of the most selective academic institutions after achieving outstanding results.

The recent investment in facilities, resources, leadership and curriculum is continuing to pay dividends. Of the awarded grades, 32% of grades were A*/A. All students who applied for a university course have been offered their first-choice destination.

Darren Carter, Assistant Principal, said “In what has been an extraordinarily challenging year, our students have once again shown resilience and aspiration in overcoming the hurdles put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although students did not have the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and understanding in final examinations, the significant evidence used to determine their grades released today are testament to their hard work and tremendous effort over their seven-year journey in secondary education. We acknowledge the continued support from parents and carers and the dedication and commitment from all of our staff.”

Amongst these, stand out performances worthy of recognition include:

  • Rachel Frazer (A* A* A* B) who is going to study biomedical science at the University of Warwick
  • Izabel Turiccki (A* A* A* A B) who is going to study mathematics at Durham University
  • Georgie Reece-Minutolo (A* A A) who is going to study biomedical science at Oxford University
  • Cassie Down (Dist* A* A) who is going to study forensic psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Daniel Travers (A* A A A) who is going to study chemical engineering at Manchester University
  • Lucy Kirbyshire (A* A A A) who is going to study politics and international relations at Birmingham University

Chris Hill, CEO of the Nene Education Trust, commented “The achievements of this cohort of students are quite remarkable considering the disruption to education during the last two years. My thanks to all the staff at Manor School for providing a positive environment for learning to flourish despite the challenges of the pandemic. The Sixth Form at Manor School is an exciting place to be.”

Prospective applicants to the Sixth From can still get in touch by contacting the school by emailing Mr Carter () at any time, or phoning the school on 01933 623921 from Thursday 2 September onwards.

Heroes Stamp Design Competition

Our school is taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition, to honour our heroes during the coronavirus pandemic.

All those aged 4-14 years from across the UK can enter the competition and a new series of eight stamps will be created. All entries will be submitted to the national competition, but we will also select a winner and award points to the winner’s House and the House with the most entries. Here’s some ideas to get students started:

  • Have a think about your heroes over the past year.
  • Which hero or heroes will you honour on your stamp?
  • What about the following groups of people working on the front line, such as refuse collectors, cleaning staff and the emergency services?
  • Many other groups of people such as delivery drivers, supermarket workers, public transport workers, vaccine scientists, military personnel and food bank volunteers have also worked non-stop to keep the country moving.

Eight young people will become part of the history of Royal Mail and of the UK this year. The winners will become the designers of stamps that will appear on millions of parcels and letters. Her Majesty The Queen will approve the winning stamp designs before they are printed and issued. There are 120 great prizes on offer for area winners and runners up, plus cash prizes for the winning schools too.

Students should download and print the official entry form linked below. They’re then ready to start designing! Their design must be their own original work. Drawings must be flat, so please don’t stick any materials or textures to the design and please use plenty of colour. Once finished, students need to give their entry to their art teacher and we will submit it on their behalf.

The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 19 May 2021.

If you have any questions please contact Miss McDowell () or
