Welcome to Malden Manor Primary School

Welcome to Malden Manor, where our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality for all the children in our care. By creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment, we seek to capture pupils’ interest, extend their knowledge and raise their aspirations. Our teaching and learning is designed to bring learning to life, both in the classroom and through a variety of inspiring experiences in the wider community. In line with our objective of being the best we can be, we encourage children to take an active role in their education, developing the skills they need for independent learning. Parental involvement is vital for children to achieve their best so it is encouraged at every stage of learning.

Malden Manor is a vibrant and welcoming community in which we strive for the highest standards of attainment – whether academic, artistic or sporting. We find and nurture hidden talents, celebrating the strengths of every child.

Our expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour are high and the children respond with delightful enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. Our broad curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities – including the popular breakfast and after-school clubs – provide a well-rounded education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Together with my team of dedicated staff and governors, I invite you to visit the school to see for yourself the fantastic opportunities it offers your child.

Potential Secondary Schools

In this local area parents are very fortunate that we are served by a wide variety of excellent schools. The children leaving Malden Manor go on to many different schools. As there is no one school we work with many of the secondary schools locally and have good links including opportunities for children to visit schools to learn from staff there, and for staff and sixth formers to work in school here.

We maintain a list of the numbers transferring to each school each year, which is available from the school office, this can also be downloaded by clicking here

Many secondary schools now start the process in the summer of Year 5, and we advise parents to start thinking about schools at least a year before they need to make a decision. We have advice meetings, to supplement those held by the LA and are happy to discuss the process with parents.

Support for Transfer

We work with children to support their preparation for transfer to secondary schools. This includes work in class to allay the usual concerns that arise at this point in a child’s education as well as general advice and skills development to prepare for coping in a bigger environment.

Grammar Schools

Both Kingston and Sutton LAs operate a grammar school system with selection tests early in the final year of primary school. We are not allowed to prepare children for these tests directly, beyond the usual experience of working to a deadline in school. 

The Local Authority has a comprehensive booklet of advice and information and their Website is a good source of information. http://www.kingston.gov.uk/info/200222/secondary_schools/381/apply_for_a_secondary_school_place_september_intake
