Headteacher's Welcome







Craig Petrie - Headteacher

It is my privilege to welcome you to Manor Drive Primary Academy. We are delighted to be welcoming our first cohort of Reception children in 2022.

Starting primary school is a hugely significant moment in a child’s life and it can be both exciting and daunting for you as parents and carers. The teachers at Manor Drive Primary Academy understand the delicate balance between nurturing and challenging children as they begin their journey through school. At Manor Drive, our pupils will learn the values and life-skills which will help them to succeed both in school and out. They will experience the joy of learning and thrive academically as they progress through our carefully designed curriculum. This will be achieved through our high expectations and excellent support, ensuring the children try their best every day.

Manor Drive Primary is a flagship project from the Four Cs MAT, and we have been able to incorporate facilities over and above those of an average primary school, including a science lab and a performing arts studio. Our purpose-built site has been designed to provide a welcoming and stimulating school environment. The children will enjoy an abundance of green space with playing fields, a forest school area and sports facilities. Within these spaces, we can offer our children outdoor learning, high-quality physical education and specialist performing arts teaching.

Opening a brand-new school gives me the unique opportunity to create an exceptional  school experience for our pupils. We have set out our vision, values and curriculum to help you to understand exactly what Manor Drive Primary Academy will become. I look forward to meeting you and your children, to discussing our ethos and answering any questions that you may have. Watch out for latest news updates to find out about upcoming events.
