A message from our Principal.


Welcome to the Ingleby Manor Free School & Sixth Form website, I hope it gives you a flavour of our school and the wonderful education we offer.

On September 12th 2016 we finally moved into our purpose built new home in Welwyn Road on the edge of town. We are delighted with this new building and have spent a great deal of time in designing the space so that we can provide an absolutely first class education for the families who are lucky enough to attend the school.

As a school we promote a strong focus on respect and providing a safe and calm place for students to enjoy the challenge of their learning. Every morning our students follow a highly focussed core curriculum and in the afternoon we offer a wider curriculum consisting of at least 20 different subject specialisms across the course of the year.

Our longer school day – starting at 8.30am with students straight into lessons and running until 4.30pm - provides our learners with 7 ¼ hours of teaching contact each day and allows us to deliver a hugely rich and varied curriculum.

Students at Ingleby Manor are expected to be hard working, courteous and respectful at all times – we pride ourselves on the calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school which allows every child the chance to make exceptional progress.
