About Us We are situated in Evering Avenue, Poole and provide education to children mainly from the local area of Parkstone and Alderney.


Manorside Academy was established in April 2015 under the sponsorship of the Ambitions Academies Trust and currently offers a mainstream Primary education. The Academy is on one site which is led by our Director of Primary Education, Alexandra Prout who is a National Leader for Education and our Principal, Gemma Sutter.  The Multi Academy Trust provides strategic leadership for the Academy with the CEO reporting both to the Governors and the Multi Academy Trustees. More information about the Trust can be found on the ‘Trust’ tab. We also frequently work in partnership with our local secondary schools who are very close by.
