Thursday was an exciting day for staff and pupils at Manor Green in Denton as Tameside’s latest academy was unveiled.

Formerly known as Manor Green Primary and Nursery school, the school has converted to academy status with Focus Trust and is now called Manor Green Primary Academy.

On a bright and sunny morning the children made promises which were tied to balloons and released into the sky.

The celebration also involved a ribbon-cutting and special cake. Principal Jackie Lomas said: “We are delighted to be working with Focus Trust and ten other like-minded schools who are totally committed to improving life chances for children.

“We are excited about our future and the opportunities it will bring.”
