Merit Assemblies and House Cup

On the last day of term we held our Merit Assemblies and One World Day celebrations, which rounded off another fantastic year at Carr Manor Community School.

In the Merit Assemblies, pupils were rewarded for excelling in their school work, having excellent attendance levels and their participation in Flexible Learning clubs. Pupils received vouchers to spend outside of school and stationary sets as a well done for their commitment and determination throughout the last year.

There was a lovely atmosphere during our One World Day celebrations, as the whole school came together to watch our performers and eat some lovely food. We celebrated the different cultures in school and it was a brilliant opportunity for pupils to spend time together before the summer holidays began. Even our Primary Phase got involved with the dancing!

This years House Points competition came to an end as the overall winners were announced. A huge well done to Bremner who came 1st, beating Robinson who came 2nd, Tomlinson who came 3rd and Trueman who came 4th. This is the first year Bremner House have won the House Points Cup so it was lovely to see them come to victory after their win at our Carr Manor Dash and near win at Sports Day 2016.

School Walk

We held our annual school walk on Monday 25th July. Pupils and staff set off from Carr Manor Community School and walked via Cranmer Road, Goodrick Lane, Stairfoot Lane and through the Meanwood Valley Trail before arriving back at school.

There was a BBQ station at the half way point where pupils could re-energise and prepare for the second half of the walk. 

We were fortunate enough to have lovely weather on the day and it was a great opportunity for pupils to explore the area around school and stay active before the start of the summer holidays.

Sports Day 2016

A huge well done to all pupils who either took part or spectated at Carr Manor Community School's 24th Annual Sports Day, held at John Charles Centre for Sport.

The day got off to a fabulous start with a number of records being broken in the field events. Darnell Mintus threw a whopping 79 metres in the Year 10 boys Cricket ball throw and Charlie Barcoe leapt 1m 50cm in the Year 8 girls High Jump. 

This success continued into the track races, with some excellent performances and very tight finishes which kept the line judges and timekeepers on their toes! The race of the day has to go to Abdullah Balogun who won the 200 metres, yards ahead of the rest of the field in a record breaking time of 25.75 seconds.

Overall, 15 records were broken throughout the day which reflects the hard work and effort from all competitors.

Congratulations go to Robinson House, who again cruised to victory for the fourth year running with an eight point lead over Bremner House. Robinson house gained 489 points and Bremner, 481 points. Well done also to Tomlinson House who finished in third place with 477 points and Trueman House who finished fourth with 439 points.

Well done to our athletes who achieved new personal bests, those who set new school records and equally as important, those who stood in to take part in races/events to gain valuable points for their team.

A huge well done to everyone who contributed making it such a positive, supportive and enjoyable day.

Sovereign Square

Pupils from our Primary Phase attended the opening of Sovereign Square, the first green city centre space to open in decades. Councillor Judith Blake, the Leader of Leeds City Council, also attended the opening which saw our Primary pupils enjoying the water fountains at the newly opened public space. Our pupils were a credit to Carr Manor Community School and very much enjoyed being involved in the opening ceremony.

Presentation Afternoon

Our highly anticipated Presentation Afternoon was held on Friday 15th July, where selected pupils were awarded for their achievements throughout the last academic year.

Families and special guests also attended the event, which saw Chanelle Johnstone being awarded the Governors award and Lee Farley receiving the Akram Khammo award.

Pupils were also awarded for their attendance, Character for Learning and contribution to Coaching, amongst other awards.

We were honoured to be joined by Fabian Hamilton, Local Labour MP and Paul Brennan, Former Deputy Director of Children's Services in Leeds. 

Our Presentation Afternoon is a prestigious event and a lovely chance for families to visit Carr Manor Community School and recognise their children’s achievements.

Remembering The Battle Of The Somme

Pupils at Carr Manor Community School have been paying tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Battle Of The Somme in a number of different ways.

From Sunday 13th March – Wednesday 16th March, three Year 8 pupils went on a Centenary Battlefield Tour, where they had the unique opportunity to travel to the Somme to commemorate the battlefield site and other sites in France and Belgium.

This was a very insightful opportunity for the pupils as they had the opportunity to interact with a variety of different historic sites, including battlefields, memorials, cemeteries and museums. They also participated in a remembrance ceremony.

Pupils also honoured the anniversary by creating poppies in their History lesson, which were displayed in the Leeds City Museum exhibition ‘In Their Footsteps.’ There was also a planting of poppies in our Primary Phase gardens where pupils read out a poem to remember those who served in the first World War.
