Welcome To Manningtree High School
Welcome to the new academic year.
We started term with a whole school assembly, a chance to get our whole community together to welcome new staff, share and celebrate the news of the exam successes of the summer and admire the smartness of the changed school uniform.
Over the summer the Multi Use Games Area was completed and the levelling of the field continues. Inside the school building, extensive re-painting has transformed the look of the main corridor.
It is great to be able to improve the environment and facilities for our students. It is a reflection of the fact that we value them and their learning. Of course, excellent lessons can and do take place in more ‘tired’ facilities but as and when finances allow us to improve the learning environment, we will continue to do so.
The theme of the start of term assembly was the formula for progress. I shared the following advice with students:
• Do your best in class – focus, engage.
• Complete all work set.
• Ensure you understand everything.
• Revise early, revise effectively, revise often.
• Take pride in your academic achievement.
• Adopt a growth mindset.
These, coupled with excellent attendance, are indeed a formula for successful learning at school.
I look forward to welcoming parents into school for the following events:
