Manorway Academy is an independent special school for children between the ages of 11-16 years old, Manorway Academy also offers tuition packages for children in key stage 1 and 2 who have difficulty maintaining a full time place at mainstream provisions,

Some of our students have been permanently excluded from school or are at risk of permanent exclusion. We believe in reintegrating our children back into mainstream school and make every effort to do so.


We are aware that some students are not able to maintain a place in mainstream school, we therefore also offer an outreach program to students, which would consit of tuition within the community and mentoring.
