Leeds Children’s Mayor 2020

Our very own Sam Hill in Year 6 has been elected as the Leeds Children's Mayor for 2020! This is a fantastic accomplishment and we're so proud that Sam will be representing CMCS. Sam is the 18th Children's Mayor of Leeds and over 3,500 children and young people voted in the elections.

Sam's manifesto is to 'be yourself, love yourself and respect all others' and he is planning to build bonds between people and community.

Sam already has some events and meetings lined up, including being involved with the Leeds Christmas lights switch-on and laying a wreath for Remembrance Sunday. Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, these events may be virtual, but it's still very exciting that Sam will be involved!

He will also be working alongside Leeds City Council and the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Eileen Taylor.

Thank you to all of our pupils who voted for Sam. We are really excited to see what the future holds for him.




Year 6 pupils had a fantastic time taking part in bikeability training sessions.

They spent time learning about bike safety, and gained confidence riding on the road.

We look forward to seeing some pupils cycling to school soon!


Languages Celebration Week

A huge thank you to all pupils who took part in our Language Celebration Week.

We had a fantastic week of language activity across the school, celebrating the diversity of languages here at Carr Manor. Many pupils enjoyed lessons in Pashto, Romanian and Mandarin, amongst others, and took part in language activities and quizzes in lessons.

Shout out to the pupils who attended the International Language Film Club at lunchtime, enjoying films in Japanese, Italian and more!

Year 7 pupils have an Enhanced Further Learning opportunity to design a T-shirt for next year’s European Day of Languages. Please remember to  get your entries in to your French or Spanish teacher before the end of this half term!

Natural Encounters Workshop

Our GCSE art pupils developed their critical thinking and observational skills during a Natural Encounters workshop led by Leeds Art Gallery.

Pupils had the chance to see an original John Nash artwork, which is worth £12,000, up close!

The workshop was also filmed by a professional filmmaker, so if you visit the Natural Encounters exhibition at the Leeds Art Gallery from 9th October, you may see some of our Year 10 artists on film as part of the exhibition.

Following the workshop, some of our Year 9 pupils then created their own artwork. We think it looks fantastic!

Results Day 2020

We are delighted to share in the celebrations with our pupils today and see the exciting and varied pathways that they have secured for their next step of employment, education or training.

We are proud of all our young people and the work that they have put into their studies over their time with us at Carr Manor Community School.

Our Executive Principal Simon Flowers commented that “The results collected today mark the pupils achievement and commitment over many years of study and we wish them the very best of luck as they move forward into their new pathways. It has been particularly humbling to see individuals who have been on a significant journey of progress overcome challenges and difficulties to secure a strong set of results. We are pleased to see our pupils thrive and flourish as young adults embarking on the next chapter of their lives."

These results represent many years of hard work and study and we are proud of you all.

Please keep in touch and we look forward to hearing about your future successes.

Admissions arrangements for September 2021

Have your say on plans to change the admissions arrangements for September 2021.

We are working with Leeds City Council on plans to make changes to the catchment areas for both Carr Manor Community School and Allerton High School.

You can share your views about the plans until 9th August 2020. For more information please click here or you can go direct to the online survey here. If you prefer, you can share your views by emailing [email protected] by the deadline.

Please note that because we are a through-school, any pupils currently on-roll at our school in Year 5 will automatically have a place in year 7 and will not be affected by these plans.

The ‘Welcome Back to Leeds’ Project

A big congratulations goes to Rumani T in Year 7 for being shortlisted as one of the top 10 entries in the 'Welcome Back to Leeds' project. 

Entrants were asked to get creative and design an advert that welcomes people back into the city of Leeds when lockdown is lifted.

Rumani's entry was vibrant and eye-catching, and the judges were very impressed as they stated it was the entry that "had them talking for the longest time."

To be shortlisted into the final 10 is a fantastic achievement and we're very proud of Rumani for getting involved.
