Welcome to our school website

Here you can find links to useful documents such as school policies, uniform regulations and examination and term timetables. The life of the school is very fast paced, so in order to keep up with our news and events, I recommend following the school on Twitter or linking via our official Facebook page. Many subject areas also have Twitter accounts.

We also communicate with parents via Schoolcomms and our periodic newsletter.

Manningtree High is a school rated 'Good' by OfSTED (2018). Our students consistently achieve GCSE results that are amongst the best in the Colchester and Tendring areas.

Typically 99% of our students transfer at age 16 to sixth form studies, further education or employment with training.

February 2019 Update

We have reached the halfway point in the academic year. From this point we can look back over another very successful Charities Week (we raised well over £6,000 together) and a wonderful Christmas concert, as well as a number of winter sporting successes and theatre trips. In this term we have the school production of School of Rock, the ski trip and also a range of STEM activities.
I am pleased to say that we are again a very popular choice for year 6 parents, with the number of people selecting us as first choice for September 2019 far exceeding the number of places available. The recently published school performance data confirms that a high percentage of students achieve the crucial grade 4s and 5s they need to access college and A level courses.  In a school with a relatively small cohort like our 2018 year 11, some performance measures are significantly skewed by the results of very few students.  However, as Ofsted verified in April 2018, the great majority of students - those who attend regularly and for whom sitting a full set of at least 8 GCSE's is the right academic path - are very successful here.
In response to feedback from parents, this term we are trialling an online booking system for Parents’ Evening appointments. If the trial is successful, we will roll it out later this academic year.
