What can we offer your child?

Visitors to Sunbury Manor frequently comment on the warm, calm, caring, studious atmosphere, the excellent relationships amongst all members of the school community and the clear enthusiasm our students have for their work and all aspects of school life.

Highlights from our full Ofsted report in March this year, that will help you get a feel for the atmosphere, curriculum and ethos of the school were:

  • This is a very inclusive school that serves its community well.
  • The school is a safe, happy and harmonious environment.
  • An effective and committed team which is passionate about improving the life chances of pupils at Sunbury Manor School.
  • Effective teaching continues to support pupils making good progress in a wide range of subjects.
  • Behaviour around the school is good, with calm and orderly movement between classes and at breaktimes. Pupils are respectful of their environment with very little litter or damage seen in the buildings. Pupils are polite and helpful to visitors, holding doors open for them. ·Attendance is above average.

The Headteacher and Leadership Team of the school are supported by a staff of fully qualified specialists and the school has a very low staff turnover.   We know that continuity and stability are key elements in ensuring that young people are able to succeed at school and they most certainly do enjoy success at Sunbury Manor.  The combination of old fashioned discipline, warmth, caring, good teaching and the widest possible range of opportunities for all young people ensures that students of all abilities achieve their potential with us.   This is why a significant number of staff, including the Headteacher, have chosen Sunbury Manor for the secondary education of their children.

The school benefits from excellent facilities on a large site with extensive playing fields. Our IT facilities are accessible to all students from home.  We use an online system for parents called “Insight”, and through this parents are able to look at their child’s attendance, behaviour and attainment day by day, email teachers, book appointments with teachers and even see what they are eating in the canteen!  We teach the separate Sciences, Chemistry, Physics and Biology throughout all five years.

Extra-curricular activities give students the chance to take part in a very wide range of activities, including the chance to train as ball boys and girls at Wimbledon.   This year 6 students got through the rigorous selection process to appear on court through the Wimbledon fortnight, most of whom worked on one of the finals.  Sunbury Manor is a very successful school in local sporting competitions. The Physical Education department offers students of all abilities a wide range of enrichment opportunities. Students were offered many PE trips in 2015/16 which included trips to Wembley, Twickenham Rugby stadium Oval, Olympic Park, Sky academy, Wentworth, TopGolf and Footgolf.

We showcase the talents of our musical and drama students in successful performances and we offer a huge range of trips within the UK and internationally.   Just recently we have had trips to The Rose Theatre, Sky Academy, British Museum, Ypres Battlefields, Budapest, Paris, Skiing in Killington - USA, and our Year 7 students enjoyed a wonderful 3 day activity camp at Blacklands Farm in Sussex.

We celebrate success at Sunbury Manor and delight in the examination results achieved by our students and in their triumphs in all aspects of school life, and you will find lots of success stories on our website (www.sunburymanor.surrey.sch.uk).   We know that students of all abilities make good progress at Sunbury Manor and one parent recently commented “Thank you for creating an environment where my boys are thriving and look forward to coming to SMS every day!” (Yr9 Parent quote)

We would be delighted to show you what makes Sunbury Manor so successful and special at our Open Evening on Thursday 6th October, or please phone (01932 78425801932 784258) to arrange a visit during a normal school day.
