The school also offers a range of vocational opportunities.

Work experience, practical involvement and self reliance are strongly encouraged on this course.

Work based learning at Colchester Institute and Manningtree High School with local employers and Tendring Adult Education.

These courses give pupils the opportunity to gain work based qualifications to level 1 in a range of vocational areas e.g. Construction, Catering, Food Skills, Animal Care, Engineering and Hairdressing. Pupils attend the colleges on two days of the week; there is no cost to parents/ guardians for transport and equipment. It is common for pupils who are selected for work based learning to also follow the Asdan course. These opportunities are available by invitation following discussions with parents and pupils during year 9. Pupils are also provided with further opportunities to widen their overall learning experience by being offered careers education and post-16 guidance, personal and social education, work experience placements, economic and environmental education.

All curriculum areas work together to make the overall learning experience of pupils relevant and coherent. Equal opportunities arecentral to curriculum planning and delivery.


Science and Engineering Club


On 18 June 2007 the Science and Technology departments started an after-school club for all those interested in Science and Engineering. At the club, year 7 and 8 students get to work on projects to help them develop skills in science and engineering . The first topic for the club is renewable energy, the students had to design, build and test a wind-powered buggy. To challenge the students to be creative they only had a set amount of materials and a variety of tools to use to design and build their buggy, so far the buggies look good. The club will continue in September when the project will be on solar power.

All children are expected to wear Manningtree High School uniform. Our aim is that pupils should develop a sense of pride in themselves in relation to their appearance and be proud to be members of the school and community. Parental co-operation is essential if we are to achieve this important aim. The school colour is navy blue. Leather or denim clothing must not be worn at school. The vagaries of fashion trends do not influence uniform. We strongly advise that parents/carers seek advice from the school prior to making any purchase or altering hair styles to avoid possible breaches of the uniform code.

Blazer Navy blue with school badge on top pocket.

Trousers Black/charcoal Tailored with a sharp crease and fitted into a waistband

Skirt Navy blue Box pleated or 'A' line style of a discreet and reasonable length

Cardigan/jumper Navy blue or black V-necked, knitted, not sweatshirt fabric

Shirt White/light blue With collar and cuffs. Polyester/cotton

Tie Blue/gold Obtainable from Manningtree High School

Shoes Black with appropriate height of heel

We are concerned about a number of accidents caused by high heels.

Socks Black/White/grey

Jewellery A watch, one plain ring, one stud in each ear only. No other visible body piercing is acceptable

Tights Plain, light in colour

Make up Any which needs to be worn should be discreet and unobtrusive.

Hair decorations Navy blue or Gold

Hair Styles To be appropriate. No artificial colour/bleach or temporary extensions/braiding or shaved designs. We feel that the school holidays provide ample opportunity for 'experimenting' with dyes. Hair styles should avoid extremes of length and design.
