I chose Manston Primary because I was impressed with the facilities and ethos of the school.  My daughter was immediately comfortable in the surroundings.


Having attended a number of primary school open days we were extremely impressed with the facilities at Manston Primary School.


Our eldest child is a pupil and we have been impressed with education and caring attitude at Manston Primary School. 


My elder child goes to Manston Primary School and I wouldn’t want my youngest to go anywhere else.


I have heard that Manston Primary School has a very good reputation.  I want the best for my child and believe they could give her the best teaching this area has to offer.
