Governing Body

Statement from the Chair of Governors


On behalf of the Governing Body, I extend a warm welcome to our school family. Carr Manor Community School is one of a small number of ‘all through’ schools in Leeds, offering an education for children from the age of 4 – 19. This unique learning experience benefits children of all ages, providing a wealth of resources and expertise across the year groups.

We take pride in ensuring that we know each child well, working with them and offering both challenge and support, to help pupils develop character and enjoy and achieve during their time with us and in life after school. For the last 3 years, all of our children have left us to go onto the pathway of their choice – further education, training or employment – safe and secure in the knowledge that they have the necessary skills to be successful.

Our school is diverse, vibrant, innovative and, in the words of one Ofsted Inspector, ‘a special place to be’. We focus upon the personal development and well-being of the child as well as their academic progress and attainment with the view that education should be a wholesome and ‘rounded’ experience that inspires curiosity and a quest for learning.
