Our Vision and Values

At Manor Drive Secondary Academy our vision is:

With knowledge, strength, respect and ambition, we believe nothing is impossible for our learners.


Our motto is:

“Knowledge, Strength, Respect and Ambition"

Knowledge: to provide the essential knowledge for all students to progress successfully in life

Strength: to create resilient learners who will tackle their future effectively

Respect: to have regard for others in our diverse and culturally rich community

Ambition: to stretch and challenge students to believe nothing is impossible

Our aim therefore is simple:

To provide the highest quality education for every student. We will nurture them to flourish and challenge them to grow. We recognise every young person is an individual who will be supported to fulfil their unique potential, enabling them to face the future with confidence.  As education is about so much more than exam performance; we will develop character, emotional resilience and self-confidence, as well as engendering a respect for cultural diversity.

Wellbeing is at the heart of all we do as we believe there is nothing more important than the emotional and physical health of our students and staff.  As a theme throughout our academic and wider curriculum, we want our students to enjoy their education experience; a happy learner is far more likely to be a successful learner. 

Collaboration is also a fundamental aspect of our vision.  We are proud to be part of the Manor Drive community and look forward to working in partnership with parents to build relationships within this community.  Our teachers will work closely with Manor Drive Primary Academy.  We learn from the outstanding practice of other schools and we support others with our own expertise.
