Please see details of the consultation on significant changes to the sixth form provision of Ambitions Academies Trust under the 'academies' page of our website.

Manorside Academy Manorside Academy believe that every child can succeed and make outstanding progress in their learning.

Manorside Academy (MA) is a primary school serving 4 -11 year olds in the Bourne Valley and Alderney communities. The academy joined Ambitions Academies Trust in April 2015 and was the third mainstream primary school to join the Trust.

Since joining the Trust, MA has received support to make it the only primary school in Poole to hold an Outstanding grading. Staff continue supporting other schools out of Special Measures to success.

The academy and all the community have our mantra, ‘High Expectations lead to High Achievers’ at the heart of everything we do, ensuring that we can be the best that we can be, regardless of background or ability.
