Carr Manor Community School (formerly Carr Manor High School) is a mixed all-through school and sixth form located 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.[1]

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,[2] 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.[3][4] The school was officially opened by Rt. Hon. Tony Blair, Prime Minister on 15 March 2007.[5] The school opened a primary phase in 2012.

In 2014 the school federated with Wetherby High School.

Academic standards[edit]

In the November 2005 Ofsted inspection the school was rated 'Satisfactory' Grade 3, on a four-point scale.[6]

However, in March 2006 the school was rated amongst the 100 most improved schools in the country.[7]

In the latest Ofsted inspection in February 2014 Carr Manor were rated as 'good'.[8]
