Manor Primary School was first opened as a Junior School in 1973
and was re-organised into a Primary School in 1991. The school occupies
a pleasant and interesting site on a south facing slope with views

At Manor, we offer an extensive range of clubs covering a wide spectrum of interests. Clubs include virtually all sporting domains from football and rugby to athletics and cricket. Sporting clubs run all year round and lead into many locals and County wide festivals and tournaments. Health, fitness and teamwork skills are also considered integral to any successful sporting clubs.
Many other clubs include those from dance, drama and the arts. We also take part in the Junior Ten Toors event and have an active ground improvement club.
As a follow on from ‘clubs’, Manor primary school commits itself to entering many local IAAC and Devon-wide festivals and sporting tournaments. This caters for children who seek to further their skills and take part in competitive sport at a range of levels, from friendly to country wide recognition.
We have a proud tradition and have an impressive record in many of the competitions held. We seek to share all sporting achievements, both inside and outside school in assemblies, and promote healthy lifestyles in our children.
