Picking the right secondary school for your child will have a significant impact on their future. After all, they will spend between five and seven of their most formative years there as they develop from children, through their teenage years, into young adults. How do you ensure that the choice that you make with them now is the right one?
Ingleby Manor Free School opened its doors for the first time in September 2014, admitting just Year 7 pupils. This was an exciting time for our young people and our community, as we realize our vision for Ingleby Barwick’s new secondary school.
Education at Ingleby Manor
Our school is characterized by teaching that develops successful learners, by pastoral systems that promote confident individuals and by an ethos throughout the school of mutual respect that encourages responsible citizens. All staff and students at Ingleby Manor Free School are respectful of each other and supportive of our group and individual goals.
Over the course of five years our students will receive over 1000 hours of additional tuition compared to a typical school offering 25 hours a week of lessons. This is the equivalent of a whole extra year of learning between the ages of 11 and 16. We focus very much upon thinking and deduction skills as we prepare our students in a way which encourages innovative approaches, confident argument and close analytical skill when sitting formal examinations.
We are delighted to have appointed an exceptional team of staff to teach your child. Our core curriculum team have a wealth of experience in delivering high quality education and outcomes whilst our wider curriculum offer makes use of both our teaching team and specialist instructors in areas such as horse riding, golf, film making, gymnastics and engineering.

Backed by an education partner (Delta Academies Trust) with wide experience and strong resources, students attending Ingleby Manor Free School will be taught in smaller than usual classes and will expect to receive high quality, innovative, teaching in an enriched curriculum offer. Our longer school day means we have the chance to offer a wider range of activities and we will be offering students the chance to pursue their own strengths and interests from an early age.
