Are you interested in joining Team Manor Leas?

Manor Leas Junior Academy stands out from the crowd. We create individuals who thrive in both their education and socially amongst their peers. We pride ourselves on the bespoke offer we craft for each individual, from our curriculum to wellbeing and mental health support, and enrichment opportunities that are above and beyond what you would find in any other primary school. Having small class sizes allows us to continue this bespoke offer into the classroom, with teachers able to give more time to each child to ensure they fulfil their potential. We are known widely in the community for our commitment to academic excellence, but also our caring and individualised approach.

When to apply?

For pupils who enter at Year 3 from either an Infant or Primary school, applications for a school place are accepted annually between November and January. 


We are aware that circumstances can change for families, such as moving house or needing a fresh start, so we accept mid-year applications year round for any year group.


Admission to Manor Leas Junior Academy is usually in the September following your child’s seventh birthday.

We have excellent links with our feeder schools and every effort is made to ensure a smooth transition from infant to junior school. This includes opportunities for children to visit the school and an information evening for parents.


The admission year 3, intake limit at present is 90 (PAN90). Where the number of applications for places at Manor Leas Junior Academy exceeds the number of spaces, the governors will apply the oversubscription criteria as per the current policy. These are:

  • Children in the care of the Local Authority

  • There is a brother or sister on roll at the school at the time of application

  • The school is the nearest one to the home address (as defined in note 3 in the current policy - see below)

  • The distance from the home to the school, priority will be given to the child living closest to the school (as defined in note 4 in the current policy - see below)


Full details can be seen in the booklet ‘Going to Primary School in Lincolnshire’, which is available from the school or online at
