Manston St James C of E Primary Academy

We have great pleasure in welcoming you to the Manston St James Primary Academy website. Our school is a two form entry primary school located in East Leeds. Founded over 150 years ago and recently joining Abbey Multi Academy Trust, the school has a very good reputation and is a popular choice with parents.

As a Church of England school we mirror the church’s vision for an education which promotes ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). Our core purpose is to educate the whole child; uniting excellence and academic rigour with spiritual, social, moral and cultural development - enabling every child to flourish.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We take our partnership with parents very seriously and we want to work with you to achieve the best possible outcomes for your child. We hope that our website will provide you with an insight into the distinctive nature of Manston St James and the many opportunities children are given to allow them to grow into happy, well-informed, socially responsible and confident individuals. Please do not hesitate to contact us to for further information or to arrange to visit.
