Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Manor Academy

Thank you for showing an interest in our school. Manor Academy is an 11-18 provision for children who have a range of learning difficulties and additional needs.

We believe at Manor Academy that everything should start with the young person. We aim to create a safe, happy environment where all pupils are valued. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum with a wealth of opportunities. This not only gives the pupils an enriching school experience, but will also help prepare them with skills for life in the wider community.

We offer a welcoming and supportive environment to parents, carers and their families. Our highly skilled staff look to celebrate all the achievements of our pupils.

Thank you for visiting our website. If you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact us by email or phone.

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.
