Year 7 Admissions 2021

SMHS Virtual Open Evening Video

A message to Year 6 parents from Mr Lycett


Our annual Open Evening was scheduled to take place on Tuesday 29th September. This is a highlight of the year for us and we really enjoy inviting Year 6 children and their parents to come and experience our amazing school and meet the brilliant staff. Unfortunately, we are unable to run the event in the same format this year. We recognise the importance of this opportunity for prospective parents and have plans in place to provide alternative experiences that will hopefully provide you with all the information you need

I suggest that the following five steps will allow you to discover why Stafford Manor High School is a very special place that your child could be part of this time next year.

  1. Visit our website. This contains a wealth of information and gives you a clear indication of the values and ethos of our school. There is also a dedicated ‘Year 7 Admissions 2021’ page that contains useful information and videos about life at Stafford Manor High School.

  2. Read our OFSTED report. Ofsted inspected us in January 2018 so please take the time to read our report as it still provides an accurate picture of our amazing school.

  3. Speak to our current pupils and families. Our greatest ambassadors are our pupils. If you have a relative, friend or neighbour who has a child at Stafford Manor High School, talk to them about their experiences. Please remember to keep your distance and follow all Government guidance when communicating with others!

  4. Watch our virtual open event. We have released our Virtual Open Evening video that provides a virtual experience of our school. There is a message from myself and plenty of opportunities to hear from staff and students. Please follow the link above.

  5. Book a personalised consultation. If you still feel you have questions that you would like to ask, then you can take advantage of our special offer and book a personalised consultation with a member of senior staff at school. This can be carried out over the phone or via Teams or Zoom. We have a variety of times available and you can book your appointment by contacting the main office on 01785 258383 or emailing

If you need to find out any information about Stafford Manor High School, our ‘Y7 Admission 2021’ page will be regularly updated with information about our unique school.
