Pupils at this Manton school along with those at Ryton Park Primary School became one recently, when both merged under one roof on Sparken Hill.

Manton School which was demolished completely by 20th July 2012, was situated on South Avenue and was home to around 300 pupils ranging from ages three to 11.

The school became known as Ryton Park and was located on two different sites, the other being on Memorial Avenue, home of the original Ryton Park.
