Carr Manor High School

Carr Manor High School is a comprehensive school in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was formed from a merger of Lawrence Oates Middle School and Stainbeck High School in 1992 under headmaster Terry Burgon. The school holds specialist Sports College status.
For the new school year in September 2006, as part of a reorganisation of secondary education in Leeds, the school was rebuilt with new staff and a new headmaster, Simon Flowers. Carr Manor was set to lose its sixth form but gain extra buildings, however, the school retained its sixth form along with a new building. The school was earmarked for closure before the new school was built. However, after opposition from politicians, parents, staff and pupils, a new school was built to replace the old two buildings. The school was officially opened by Rt. Hon. Tony Blair, Prime Minister on 15 March 2007.
In the November 2005 Ofsted inspection the school was rated 'Satisfactory' Grade 3, on a four point scale. This reflected the low standards of attainment of the students before their entry to the school.
However, in March 2006 the school was rated amongst the 100 most improved schools in the country.
