Sport


The major winter sports for boys are rugby and hockey, which are played for one term each, and soccer which is played throughout the season. Hockey matches are held at a local club where there are top-class artificial surfaces, and there are two rugby pitches and one soccer pitch on the School's extensive campus.


Girls play hockey as their principal sport in the Autumn term and netball in the Spring term. The School’s own facilities include an artificial pitch and two hockey pitches. Hockey in particular has enjoyed great success in recent years, and the School has produced two junior international players, one of whom has gone on to represent Great Britain at senior level and competed at the Sydney Olympics.

In the Summer Term cricket, tennis and athletics are the major sports. In addition to the main sports, cross-country running, basketball, golf, trampolining, aerobics, gymnastics, rounders, fencing, karate and swimming are offered.


Every year a number of pupils gain representative honours at area, county, and national level in a wide variety of sports. The School is very conscious of the value of physical fitness and the personal development achievable through sport, whether in team games or in individual competition.





Extra Curricular


One of the guiding principles of Manwood’s is that its pupils should work hard, play hard and contribute to the School community at least as much as they derive from it. The wide range of activities offers numerous opportunities both to develop interests and to take responsibility.


On the musical front, for example, there are frequent concerts for choirs, orchestra, brass band, jazz band, rock bands, and soloists, with opportunities for all levels of competence to perform in public. Peripatetic teachers visit the School regularly to give lessons, as well as taking part in the evening concerts.


Drama is very strong within the school with both Senior and Junior Productions each year and lively Drama Clubs which meet each week. Drama also appears on the curriculum at all Key Stages.


The Combined Cadet Force, in which both boys and girls participate, is greatly in demand at civic occasions, besides providing exciting opportunities on its Field Weekends, Adventure Training Weeks, and Annual Camps. All members are volunteers, and the contingent numbers about 120.


The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is very popular with students pursuing Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.


Debating and Public Speaking competitions are run in school and students compete for the David Starkey Awards at Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels. Students also compete in national competitions.


The Manwoodian Magazine is produced each year by a student editorial group under the leadership of a member of staff.


In the course of the year staff organise a wide variety of trips: to lectures and conferences, art gallery, museum and theatre visits, foreign exchanges, form outings, day trips to France and an annual skiing trip.


The Charity Committee is active throughout the school year organising events to raise money for the nominated school charity. One highlight of the year is “Charity Week”.


Two Young Enterprise Companies operate in school each year with members of the Lower Sixth honing their entrepreneurial and business skills.


Careers Guidance


The Careers Guidance programme aims to help students develop the skills and confidence required to make realistic and informed decisions about their future and to help them manage the transition from one stage of their career to the next. In this way the programme helps to support the overall school policy aims of developing self-awareness and adaptability.


The school ensures that the needs of all students are met in a variety of ways:


  • by providing exposure to careers work through specific timetabled Form lessons in Year 9;

  • by introducing them to Careers Resources in Year 9;

  • by providing access to careers guidance interviews (provided by a Connexions Personal Adviser);

  • by allowing access to Careers Resources in school;

  • by providing a Bi-annual Careers Convention open to years 8-13, with local employers and educational representatives attending;

  • by providing Careers information on jobs available locally, local training programmes, careers events, open days, course and clearing information which is displayed on notice boards in the Careers Department and in Sixth Form areas;

  • by providing Careers software available on the network to assist in the decision making process;

  • by providing Options booklets for Year 9 and Year 11 students;

  • by organising Options Evenings which are held each year;

  • by arranging small group presentations and individual interviews which are provided by representatives from the RAF, Army, Royal Navy and Royal Marines;

  • by organising employer presentations to students through the PSHE programme;

  • by providing Department for Education and Skills and Learning Skills Council information packages;

  • by providing advice on the UCAS application process and preparation for university.


Work Related Learning


All students in Year 11 undertake a period of Work Experience during the Summer Term. Before this begins students are well briefed and take part in a range of preparatory activities. They receive instruction relating to the Health & Safety at Work Act and advice on how to produce a Curriculum Vitae.


Students in Years 10 and 11 are introduced to the world of work through a variety of activities which include:-

  • Video/DVD sessions showing a variety of working environments and types of jobs within particular fields;

  • Problem solving sessions;

  • Enterprise week where students run a company;

  • Fund raising during charity week.



Gifted and Talented Students

Within a Grammar School such as Sir Roger Manwood’s it may be argued that all students are “gifted and talented”. It is, however, clear that a sizeable number of students are exceptionally gifted and talented in a variety of academic subjects, the arts and sports etc.


At Sir Roger Manwood’s there is a Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator who liaises with staff from all the academic departments as well as those who run extra curricular activities. In an ongoing process the Co-ordinator compiles a list of those students who are considered to be Gifted and Talented. Gifted and Talented students are encouraged to join the national Young, Gifted and Talented Programme (YG&T). Summer schools run by organisations (e.g. The Eton Summer School for Oxbridge Candidates) have attracted students from this school and the Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator holds a budget to defray all or some of the cost of the courses.


Students, particularly in the Sixth Form, study Open University courses, usually in Science. Within school, Gifted and Talented students are very often following differentiated courses developed by their teaching staff. There is also a working party chaired by the Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator consisting of staff and students which meets regularly to consider all aspects of provision for Gifted and Talented students. The Physical Education Department has established a scheme to target talented athletes and sportsmen from an early age – those joining the scheme will follow training regimes in their specialised sport.


Finally, the school has a very strong commitment to educational visits as well as extra-curricular activities. As a Language College students are encouraged to join exchange visits to France, Italy, Germany and China. Other departments such as History and Politics organise visits to Berlin, Washington and New York while both the Geography and the Science Departments organise field trips. In the last few years, the School Orchestra has visited Hungary, Barcelona and Italy (twice). While these visits and trips obviously benefit all those pupils who take part, those who are Gifted and Talented have a huge opportunity to take their particular aptitude one stage further.


Special Educational Needs


As a selective school the number of pupils with Special Educational Needs is understandably limited and the provision available offers targeted support to those who have a specific difficulty whilst otherwise being academically able.


The School SEN policy is reviewed annually by the Governing Body and is in line with the SEN Code of Practice. The SEN co-ordinator works closely with the Deputy Headteacher, Heads of Year, Form Tutors and Subject Teachers as necessary and parents are encouraged to participate in the planning and delivery of any support provided.


Religious Education


Sir Roger Manwood’s is a non-denominational school, although Christian in character. As required by law, Religious Education is provided for all pupils in accordance with the Kent Agreed Syllabus. In addition, an act of collective worship takes place each day in the School Hall. Whilst encouraging all members of the school community to attend Religious Education lessons and assembly, parents have the right to withdraw their children. Should a pupil be withdrawn; alternative arrangements will be provided.


Boarding Admissions


There has been boarding provision at Manwood’s since the School’s earliest days, with major expansion of accommodation in the last 1940s. Girls now occupy The Lodge and boys occupy The Grange, two large houses situated in the school grounds. Boarders come from all over the world, as well as from other parts of the United Kingdom. There are approximately equal numbers of boy and girl boarders.


The Houses develop a strong sense of community and identity, and the House Parents are assisted by House Tutors and Matrons in promoting the physical, social and spiritual well-being of those in their care. Senior pupils act as House Prefects and are encouraged to help in furthering the interests of the younger members of their Houses

Boarding places are offered subject to availability and to performance in tests set by the School. Pupils arrive at all levels, especially at 11+, for the GCSE years and for A-Levels.


Boarders have two exeats per term, as well as half-term and the main school holidays. Sandwich is conveniently situated, only a few miles from the ports of Dover and Ramsgate and not far from the A2/M2 which affords easy access to London and beyond. The town’s railway station is only a two-minute walk from the School, and there are hourly trains to Dover and London.


Boarding fees for 2009/10 are £2,650 per term (£7,950 p.a.). These are reviewed annually.


NO TUITION FEES


All entrants must have UK or EU citizenship









Admissions Policy for Boarding Pupils


Applications for places in Year 7:


Boarding Applications will be considered upon receipt of the following information, which must be supplied by the parents/guardians of the pupil:


  • A fully completed Boarding Application Form

  • A copy of the child’s UK/EU passport


There are places for 114 day pupils and up to 6 places for boarders; if there are insufficient boarding applications when the allocation of day places takes place, the school will fill up with day pupils


Entry is through the Kent age 11 assessment procedure if the child is resident in the UK. If not, pupils will be required to sit an English and Mathematics Test, set by the school, in order to assess suitability for selective education.


If the number of preferences for boarding is more than the number of places available, places will be allocated in the following priority order.


  1. Children in Local Authority Care – a child under the age of 18 years for whom the local authority provides accommodation by agreement with their parents/carers (Section 22 of the Children Act 1989) or who is the subject of a care order under Part IV of the Act.




  1. Children of members of the UK Armed Forces.




  1. Sibling on roll at the time of entry – In this context brother or sister means children who live as brother or sister in the same house, including adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers or sisters.




  1. Those candidates for whom boarding is a social or medical need. Examples of social need could be considered to be candidates whose parents are posted or resident overseas and for whom comparable educational provision does not exist within their country of residence; candidates whose main carer suffers from a chronic long term illness or severe disability; or other examples of social need as outlined in Paragraph 2.60 of the DCSF Admissions Code. When considering applications on the basis of medical need, the Admissions Committee will require such evidence as they may reasonably deem necessary. The evidence must demonstrate a special connection between the candidate’s needs and Sir Roger Manwood’s School.



Applications for places in Years 8 – 10


Applications are considered on their academic merit upon receipt of:

  • A fully completed Boarding Application Form

  • A copy of the child’s most recent school report

  • A copy of the child’s UK/EU passport


Priority will be given where there is a sibling on roll at time of entry. Upon receipt of a report and reference, which indicates that the child is likely to benefit from a selective education, testing will be arranged for Year 8-10 applicants. This is usually arranged via the child’s current school, in liaison with their Headteacher.


An offer of a boarding place will be made subject to receipt of satisfactory references, test results and availability of a place. A deposit of £2650 (the first term’s fees in advance) is required, payable in two instalments (£1325 upon acceptance of the offer and the balance of £1325 due in March 2010). The deposit is non-refundable.


If at the time of application there is no place in the school available (i.e. we are oversubscribed), the application will be turned down at that stage.


If a boarding place becomes available at a later date parents will be consulted to establish that a place is still required. Academic references and reports will then be requested from the child’s current school.


Applications for places in the Sixth Form:


Applications are considered on their academic merit upon receipt of:

  • A fully completed Boarding Application Form

  • A copy of the latest school report for the student

  • A letter of application from the student

  • A copy of the child’s UK/EU passport


Priority will be given where there is a sibling on roll at time of entry.


Our entry requirements at SRMS for the study of four AS/A level subjects are at least six GCSE examination passes at C grade or above with A and B grades in those subjects which the student wishes to study. GCSE passes are a reflection of attainment so far, not necessarily a prediction of suitability for AS/A level courses. As a result, a great deal of emphasis is placed on subject teachers’ recommendations and this is why a grade A GCSE pass may be required as a condition of further study.


Where a student is choosing a subject which they did not study at GCSE, they must show evidence of academic strengths at GCSE in other related disciplines.


It is assumed that students will have sat, where relevant, the Higher Tier GCSE examination in a given subject that they wish to pursue in the sixth form.


A school reference is also required from external applicants.


Priority will be given to existing pupils transferring from Year 11. The Published Admission Number for external candidates is 40 but this figure may be exceeded in the event that this and the number of internal pupils transferring into Year 12 is less than the overall total figure for the year group, which is 160.


An offer of a Year 12 boarding place is made based on estimated grades (provided by the child’s current Headteacher/Principal) together with receipt of satisfactory references and availability of a place; however, any offer of a place is conditional upon the estimated grades being achieved. A deposit of £2650 (the first term’s fees in advance) is required, payable in two instalments (£1325 upon acceptance of the offer and the balance of £1325 due in March 2010). This deposit is refundable if the student does not achieve the predicted grades, but in all other respects the deposit is non-refundable.


If at the time of application there is no place in the school available (i.e. we are oversubscribed), the application will be turned down at that stage.


If a boarding places become available at a later date parents will be consulted to establish that a place is still required. Academic references and reports will then be requested from the child’s current school.


If a student who has been allocated a boarding place fails to achieve their predicted grades the conditional offer is withdrawn.


Admission Criteria for Day Places


In the academic school year when they reach the age of 11, students have the opportunity to take the Kent age 11 assessment procedure, which is a selection test that is taken in the primary school as part of the county selection procedure. This procedure helps you to decide which secondary school would be most appropriate for your child.


Entry for day places at Sir Roger Manwood’s is through the Kent age 11 assessment procedure. The schools Published Admissions Number is 120. If the number of preferences for the school is more than the number of places available, places will be allocated in the following priority order.


  1. Children in Local Authority Care – a child under the age of 18 years for whom the local authority provides accommodation by agreement with their parents/carers (Section 20 of the Children Act 1989) or who is the subject of a care order under Part IV of the Act.




  1. Sibling on roll at the time of entry – In this context brother or sister means children who live as brother or sister in the same house, including adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers or sisters.




  1. Nearness of child’s permanent home to school, with those living nearest being accorded the highest priority. The distance is measured between the child’s permanent address and the school measure in a straight line using Ordnance Survey address point data. Distances are measured from a central point within the child’s home to a similarly defined point within the school as specified by Ordnance Survey. The school uses measurements provided by the LA and further information on how distances are calculated is available in the Admissions Booklets provided by the LA.


A child’s home address is considered to be a residential property that is the child’s only main residence (not an address at which the child may sometimes stay or sleep) and which is either owned by the child’s parent, parents or guardian or leased or rented to them under a lease or written rental agreement. Where partners live apart but share responsibility for the child, and the child lives at two different addresses during the week, we will regard the home address as the one at which the child sleeps for the majority of week days.


Waiting List


In the case of over-subscription, after all places have been offered following the above criteria, a waiting list will be kept at least until the first day of the Spring Term in the admission year in case some students prove unable to take up the places offered. Eligible students will be placed on a waiting list in descending order, according to the over-subscription criteria. Late applications will be accepted and processed in accordance with the scheme published in the LA’s admission booklets.


All candidates requiring admission to Sir Roger Manwood’s must provide evidence of academic potential through the Kent age 11 assessment as detailed above.


The number of places available for pupils at age 11 is 120.


Candidates requiring admission at the age of 12 or later must also provide evidence of academic potential by sitting tests set by the school in English, Mathematics, Science and a foreign language as appropriate. A reference from the Headteacher of the candidate’s current school, together with an up to date school report is also required.


The School will consider applications for places at 12+ and above, but the pressure for entry is such that places are most readily available at 11+ and at the beginning of A-Level courses.


Sixth Form Admission Arrangements


Our entry requirements at SRMS for the study of four AS/A level subjects are at least six GCSE examination passes at C grade or above with A and B grades in those subjects which the student wishes to study. GCSE passes are a reflection of attainment so far, not necessarily a prediction of suitability for AS/A level courses. As a result, a great deal of emphasis is placed on subject teachers’ recommendations and this is why a grade A GCSE pass may be required as a condition of further study.

It is assumed that students will have sat, where relevant, the Higher Tier GCSE examination in a given subject that they wish to pursue in the sixth form.


A school reference is also required from external applicants.


Priority will be given to existing pupils transferring from Year 11. The Published Admission Number for external candidates is 40 but this figure may be exceeded in the event that this and the number of internal pupils transferring into Year 12 is less than the overall total figure for the year group, which is 160.


Joining Sir Roger Manwood’s School


Once you have been awarded a place at our school, we will send you full details about term dates, uniform, suppliers, New Year 7 Parents’ Evening and our Induction Day for Year 6 students.


In addition, the Head of Year 7 will visit each student in their primary school so that they can get to know them and find out more about Manwood’s and what to expect when they first arrive in September. The Head of Year 7 will place students into Form groups prior to the Induction Day in July where students are invited to spend a whole day at the school. This day will give them the opportunity to meet with their Form Tutor and fellow students and experience some sample lessons.


When they start in September, having already met their form tutor and new classmates, they will be introduced to the timetable, the school’s standards of conduct and homework routines.


Homework is a partnership between teachers, pupils and parents. Teachers will set and mark it, pupils will do it, and we rely on parents to encourage their child and ensure that it is done on time. At the beginning of each year each student will be issued with a planner for them to record their homework and other events, and for their parents to see what they are doing. Usually students will have two or three subjects a night, mostly, but not always written work. They should need about 30 minutes or so for each subject. Parents are asked to sign the planner each week, and if they have any queries call us immediately. Homework is vital, firstly in order to cover the syllabus, and secondly to help train the students to work unsupervised as part of their preparation for their ‘A’ level and university studies.


If there is a problem over homework or anything else then parents are asked to contact us immediately. Most problems can be solved quickly and easily.


In the November following the start of their new school year, parents will be invited to a Parents Evening where they can meet the Form Tutor and some of their teachers. Later on in the year there will be another Parents Evening attended by all the subject teachers. Parents will be sent information about their child’s progress each term.


OfSTED


The school was inspected by OfSTED in November 2006. The Report concluded that SRMS “is a good school with a number of outstanding features. It turns out confident, well-rounded young people who are exceptionally well equipped for future life. This is because of their excellent personal development and the high academic standards they achieve.”


The full Report can be viewed on the school’s web-site: www.srms.kent.sch.uk

Friends of Manwood’s


The Friends of Manwood’s raise funds for the school by organising a variety of different activities throughout the school year.


A Committee, made up of parents with children at the school, meet monthly to plan the forthcoming events. The Headteacher and Business Manager also attend the meetings.


Whilst raising very important additional funds for the school the Friends seek to organise fun social events which both pupils and parents can enjoy.


The Friends have recently committed money to the Swimming Pool and students have benefited greatly from this sports and leisure facility.


The School is also looking into the possibility of buying a new minibus and the Friends again will support this initiative. Thus, all their hard work and fund-raising efforts are helping the school in some very worthwhile ways.

If you would like to become an active member of the Friends please contact the Friends of Manwood’s via the school – your support would be very much appreciated.
