  • Celebrate World Pi Day

    Months ago, the Maths Department were discussing ways we could celebrate world pi day, held on March 14th every year, by doing something a little unusual and memorable for the students.

    “All students who were involved will have the opportunity to buy a photo – sent home next week.”

Welcome To Manningtree High School

For our year 11 students, the pressure of exams and school year is almost over. For the rest of us, there is still a great deal of important work to do before the summer break. All the students have exams, beginning with year 10. For teachers, summer term is a time for refining teaching schemes  and assessments. Many subjects need to prepare to teach new GCSE syllabi. 

Some of the Manningtree staff have had the privilege of being able to visit local primary schools to see the work that students are doing from reception to year 6. Knowing exactly what students have studied and understanding how it is taught helps us to achieve our aim of ensuring  that students are able to make progress from the first day at Manningtree.  We are grateful to our colleagues at Dedham, Lawford and Highfields  for their generosity with their time and collaboration.

This term we will have our Awards assembly, Activities Week, Sports Day and (for year 10) Work Experience. The work on the Multi Use Games Area has begun. This should be ready when we return in September. It will be a floodlit sports facility, available to hire outside school hours.

Every Summer term is a blend of goodbyes and hellos. We say goodbye to our year 11 students (although we will see them on Results Day of course ) and say hello to the 173 year 6 students who will be joining us in September as they attend Induction Days. Our intake number is 174 so we have just one free place for September. This popularity is a testimonial to the great behaviour and community spirit of our students and the quality of teaching and learning that go on here.
