Welcome To Manningtree High School
As 2017 gets underway, this seems a good time for looking ahead to some of the events to come.
Our school Production of ‘Guys and Dolls’ will be the highlight of early February. Students from across the year groups have got involved and it will be great to see many students making their stage debuts.
Already this term students have had the opportunity to get a taste of sixth form studies at Suffolk One, enter a Debating competition and compete as Young Detectives. There are theatre trips to look forward to this term. As usual, we will be celebrating World Book Day.
The Art block re-building work will run from February into the Summer holidays. We have tried to minimize the disruption this will cause but having a major demolition and re-build in the heart of the school will require some adjustments. The short term pain will be more than compensated for by the long term gain of new classroom spaces.
They may not consider it something to look forward to, but Year 11 will have a second set of Mock exams at the end of February. Educational research says that testing helps learning. There are many quiz based learning apps and websites that students can use for effective revision.
