Thank you to all families who attended our Year 7 Enrolment Evening on Thursday 6th July.

New pupils and their families were given a tour of the school, had the chance to buy/order uniform and speak to members of staff and current pupils. 

We look forward to welcoming pupils again either during Summer School, or when the join us in September.

If you have any questions from Enrolment Evening, please don't hesitate to contact us or your child's new Coach.

#OneWorld Displays

A Year 8 class have created some very thoughtful displays in reflection of the Manchester and London attacks, and other tragedies around the world.

Pupils have created messages of unity to show people we are #oneworld and reflected on what they are thankful for. The pupils work is incredibly inspiring and is on display in one of the Humanities classrooms.

Year 11 Stand Down

On Friday 26th May, the Year 11 pupils were 'stood down' from school after sitting their GCSE English Exam.

Pupils had an assembly after their exam, before being surprised with the fact they were being stood down.

The Year 11's were given leavers t-shirts which they then got signed by fellow pupils and staff members. It was a great chance to get photos of pupils in their t-shirts as good luck messages were being passed around.

There was a lovely, yet emotional, atmosphere on the day as pupils said goodbye to staff.

Although pupils will still be coming in for their GCSE's, that was the last time they will all be together before their prom in June.

Leeds Rhinos Coaching

Yorkshire Carnegie coached our Year 7 and 8 girls at their training facility, Headingley Carnegie Stadium, on Friday 5th May. The girls then had the opportunity to play on the match during half time of the Yorkshire Carnegie and Ealing Trailfinders match.

It was brilliant to see the girls showing off their skills on the pitch, and the pupils were a credit to Carr Manor Community School.

Carr Manor Dash 2017

A massive congratulations to Robinson House who were the overall Carr Manor Dash winners of 2017!

Bremner House, who weren't able to hold onto their title from last year, came 2nd, whilst Tomlinson came 3rd and Trueman took 4th place.

To compete in the Dash, pupils took part in time trials in their PE lessons and the fastest pupils qualified to race around school.

There were four races in total, KS3 girls and boys races and KS4 girls and KS4 boys races.

The best times from each race were then totaled up and the overall winner, in this case Robinson House, was decided.

Those who weren't running created banners in Coaching+ lessons to cheer on and encourage their House representatives. It was lovely to see how much effort had been put into the banners and how much support pupils had for those running.

A big well done to all those involved and it was a brilliant afternoon of sportsmanship! 

Eddie Gray Visit For Bremner House Relaunch

Eddie Gray visited us at Carr Manor Community School for the relaunch of our Bremner House.

Eddie, who was voted the third greatest Leeds United player of all time in 2000, was welcomed into school by the Bremner House Captains and Head of House, Miss Walker.

Bremner House, named after Billy Bremner, Eddie’s club captain at Leeds United, is the fourth and final House to be re-launched here at Carr Manor, following Robinson, Tomlinson and Trueman.

Eddie spent time with Year 4, who were testing out their newly acquired football skills. The pupils received some excellent tips from Eddie to help them improve their dribbling skills, such as keeping their heads high at all times. He referred back to his advice from Don Revie, who told him to “always remember the three C’s – courage, confidence and concentration.”

He also judged a primary arts and crafts competition, where pupils decorated either the Leeds United logo or the Bremner House logo. Eddie chose the winning design due to it's simplicity and neatness.

The Bremner Vice Captains and House Captains then introduced Eddie to our school values, spoke to him about our Coaching system and showed him photos of the different sporting events we hold throughout the year.

To finish his visit, Eddie spoke in the Bremner House assembly, saying “I hope you all feel proud to be part of the Bremner household here, because I know it was a privilege and a pleasure for me to play with Bremner.”

“I just hope that it’s an inspiration to you to represent such a great man and a great leader.”

Following on from Eddie’s speech, Miss Walker, Head of Bremner House, said “what Eddie spoke about today regarding Billy Bremner’s character is completely what we represent here at Carr Manor Community School. It is all about character, enthusiasm, and being the most motivated person that you can be. I am really proud to be the representative of a House, of a man, that clearly was the epitome of that.”

Armley Mills Trip

Year 3 pupils had a trip to the Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills.

Pupils had the opportunity to experience some of the jobs children their age would have done in the Victorian era; scavenging scraps from beneath spinning machines, fixing broken bobbins and filling the machines with wool.

It was a great experience for Year 3 and the trip made them appreciate how much has changed since the Victorian era.

Easter Egg-stravaganza!

Thank you to all who attended the PTA Spring Fair in the Primary Phase on Friday 21st April. As always, it was a well attended community event enjoyed by all.

Parents, staff and children were all entertained by Truffles the Magician, engaged in the Easter Crafts and participated in various games/stalls and raffles.

Well done to all involved for their hard work, time and effort. It really was egg-cellent!
