Values and Vision

Manor High is built upon our four core values of Excellence, Inspiration, Resilience and Respect, which are reflected in everything we do. We are a friendly, hard-working and highly aspirational 11 to 16 school with around 900 students. The school is recognised for and celebrates its distinctive character and ethos. 

We are highly ambitious for all of our children who share our love of learning. Our lessons are enjoyable, challenging, fast-paced and fun. We provide a focused and personalised learning environment which enables every individual to thrive and succeed. We know our parents, our children and their community well and they know us. This is part of what makes Manor High stand out and is often referred to as the ‘Magic of Manor’. 

There are many opportunities for enrichment that run throughout the year to enhance the learning experience. Visit us on Facebook and Twitter, explore our website and read our latest newsletter to find out more. 

Through its system of vertical tutoring, the school is able to settle pupils quickly. Older students develop leadership skills as they support the learning and self-esteem of newer, younger children. Manor High School is proud of its diversity, which brings with it a cultural richness that benefits every member of the school community.

Manor High School aspires to be outstanding in all areas and we seek to recruit individuals of the highest calibre who can demonstrate the experience, skills and determination to help us meet this aspiration.

We are proud to be in the top 1% of schools nationally for progress, and in Leicestershire. This exceptional achievement has been achieved through the hard-work and dedication of our staff, and the continuous challenge of our students, whatever their individual starting point.

We are looking for a team player with a positive, can-do attitude who is passionate about their subject and excited to inspire others.

As a school, we will support your own professional learning and development, through CPD opportunities and our own “Manor High Way”.
