School's History and Background Information

Manor Lodge Community Primary & Nursery School sits at the heart of the community on Manor Lane in the S2 area. Part of the school building has been standing for over 130 years - since Victorian times. The school takes its name from the nearby, historic Tudor building, the Manor Lodge Turret House, where Mary Queen of Scots was famously imprisoned for a time.


Our History Curriculum highlights the importance of both of these periods of time in both British and local (Sheffield) history and helps further develop our children's pride and understanding of the local area.



Manor Lodge Community Primary & Nursery School re-opened as an academy on 1st December 2016 as part of Sheffield South East Trust, alongside 4 other local primary schools working closely together. The Trust has since expanded to include 7 schools in total (from January 2024).    

The school caters for the needs of approximately 375 children from the age of 3 years to 11 years.
We operate a one and a half form entry (45 pupils per year group), from Foundation Stage, through Key Stages One and Two. We also have 'The Pride' which is our Integrated Resource that caters for children with ASD in both Reception and Key Stage 1.


We are also currently expanding our school site to enable us to become a 2-form entry primary school by 2030. 
In September 2024, our Reception intake will be 60 pupils and this will continue gradually over the subsequent 6 years until we reach our capacity of 420 mainstream pupils.
