Headteacher’s comment

I am delighted, on behalf of the staff, governors and pupils, to write these few words of welcome and introduction to Manor Academy.

At Manor Academy we understand the huge responsibility of preparing our pupils for their future lives. Our hope is that we can help young people become responsible citizens who will have the skills to make a positive contribution to society.
Our curriculum and philosophies provide the opportunities for academic and social development that will enhance the life opportunities for our young people as they move into the adult world.

Our website aims to provide you with key information, curriculum insight and news on the academy.
If you are unable to find the information you require, please contact us or alternatively call us on

We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.

Myself and the staff at Manor Academy look forward to working with you.

The Sovereign Trust

The Trust is formed of two special schools, Manor Academy and Pictor Academy, with the aim of developing a vision and strategic plans for educational needs in Trafford and surrounding areas. With this collaboration we are able to increase the opportunities for our staff, children and young people. We are able to offer our specialist knowledge to other schools, academies and professional bodies regionally; through advice, consultancy and training.

The Trust will be outward looking to support the needs of SEN learners and providers in the locality and region.

Please find a link to The Sovereign Trust website here.


We want our children and young people to be the best they can be within an environment which challenges and supports.
We focus upon academic standards but equally important to us is the development of independence skills to enable all to achieve and stand out as valued member of their communities.
