Aston Manor has a strong reputation for providing an excellent education for all its pupils in a friendly and caring environment.
Our school caters for children of all abilities in a well-disciplined environment and through a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Our staff are highly qualified, experienced and committed to ensuring that every pupil reaches his or her potential.
We currently have over 830 pupils on roll and pride ourselves on being a close-knit community, in which everyone feels valued and involved. This enables children transferring from primary schools to settle in very quickly.
We are proud of the way in which our pupils conduct themselves both in school and outside. Visitors frequently compliment them on their 'confident and courteous behaviour'. During every lesson, pupils' efforts and conduct are monitored by staff.
Commendation stamps are recorded in their planners at the end of a lesson. These are monitored by form tutors in afternoon registration. This programme ensures that pupils who are working well are rewarded; it also indicates those pupils who could try harder.
This reward system keeps parents informed, lesson by lesson, about how their child is progressing. It draws on a support network which involves form tutors, heads of department, heads of year, assistant head teachers, parents and ultimately, the head teacher and school governors.
