At Lea Manor High School we strive for excellence in all things, and to inspire and challenge our students to reach beyond themselves so they leave proud of their achievements.
Life as a Lea Manor student stimulates a real quest for excellence, mutual respect and a desire for life-long learning. Our students are well-rounded and motivated to put ideas into action and contribute to a more tolerant and safer world.
Our mission is to produce confident and compassionate people. Through teaching excellence and supportive pastoral care, we encourage individual success for community good.
Our vision and mission are shaped by our determination to encourage self-knowledge, articulated by our school motto: Learning for life.
In order to be of service to others, we want all our students to have sufficient self-reliance to know that, with determination, they can overcome adversity and remain true to their purpose, that they can be of value to society and help make the world a better place.
Our aim is to inspire our students through a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges inside and outside the classroom, where they learn about their strengths and weaknesses, and are encouraged to reach beyond themselves.
We support our students to develop their individual academic, creative and sporting talents and skills of leadership to enable and empower them to make an active and real contribution to their world.
We foster a democratic and accountable culture where our students contribute fully to school and community life and take increasing responsibility for their own learning and actions.
We want our students to have the confidence and resilience to stand up for what is right and the desire to reach out to others. This balance of confidence and compassion is not on any syllabus, yet it is central to everything we do.
We are determined to ensure all our students leave with an enduring foundation for life and their futures. We want them to have the qualifications, skills and values that they need to live safe and fulfilled lives, but also to know that they can overcome adversity, remain true to their purpose, and be of service to others.
The Year 11 Prefect team assists in Year 7 shared reading and are assigned a tutor class to help support students with literacy and mentoring. Emma Tobin will be able to provide a more in depth account on this.
Year 11 is a focus on ensuring all students are mentally and emotionally ready to sit their GCSE exams. Support in continually provided through excellent teaching and the opportunity to attend study plus, after school throughout the week.
Year 11 will have a Careers Convention at school where students and parent/carers will have the opportunity to speak to further education providers. This will include colleges, sixth forms and apprenticeship providers.
In the final year of school Year 11 students will also have the added bonus of looking forward to their school Prom.
The Year 11 Prefect team:
Year 11 are offered the opportunity to participate in the annual enrichment trip to Grendon hall as part of a revision skills and GCSE preparation event.
All of the students can participate in seminars on topics such as how to manage revision stress and maintain well being, organising time and workload through revision timetables and how to best utilise thinking maps to help with presenting key information. Students are introduced to the new GCSEPod revision tool, which sees students login to the service and access thousands of podcasts and videos to support their understanding of topics across all areas of the curriculum.
In addition to these valuable learning sessions, get involved with a range of outdoor pursuits including traversing the swamp, high wires, blind walks and abseiling.
The enrichment day is always a real success and the feedback from the year 11 students shows how the event supports their revision and focus in the final year of study at Lea Manor.
