  • Academy sheep arrive

    10th January 2014 - De Warenne Academy

    This December saw the arrival of six sheep loaned to the academy by Mr Darren Whitaker through Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. This has come about as a result of the discovery of rare grassland habitat during the new build process and the sheep will help maintain this eco-system. All of the sheep are rare breeds and we have two hebridean, two manx loaghtan and two whitefaced woodland.

    The sheep have their own grazing area and are settling in well. They are proving very popular with the students who will be involve

  • Enterprise Year 5

    8th January 2014 - Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School

    We are really proud of Year 5 who managed to raise over £80 at the Christmas market, through running their own enterprise stall.

    The children made and sold pottery Christmas decorations. They also made up some games and Evie and her Grandmother made a cake that we cut up and sold.

    The class have decided to buy some new books and games with some of the money and then they have decided to save the rest, so they can add more money to their funds in future,

    Well done Year 5!

  • Goodbye Mr Tonner...

    20th December 2013 - Manor Croft Academy

    Manor Croft Academy, and especially every student that was blessed to have Mr Tonner as their headmaster, wish him all the best for his retirement.

    The students who have been taught by Mr Tonner over the past few years expressed their thanks with messages and pictures that were converted into a memory book. The student gesture was presented to him yesterday afternoon at his retirement party. The Earlsheaton area has lost a true gentleman, one that has had a huge impact on many of our families here at Manor C

  • Student Leadership under way...

    20th December 2013 - Manor Croft Academy

    The meeting was a fact finding mission to establish where the school is in terms of student needs. The debate progressed to include what vision these young leaders had for their own school and how they envisage it can be achieved.

  • Staff Christmas Panto.....

    20th December 2013 - Manor Croft Academy

    The last day of term was to remember for the students at Manor Croft Academy.  

    The 20th December 2013 will go down in history as the first ever staff panto. The talent put forward for Cinderella was questionable, yet we strode on to embarrass ourselves for the benefit of the children.  

    What a performance it was to behold. After weeks of sporadic rehearsals, Miss Lyons tearing her hair out and what turned out to be a pointless prop the staff called a script, the pantomime was delivered.

    We hope all the studen
