The Curriculum

An ISI Report in 2022 rated Eaton House The Manor ‘Excellent’ with ‘diversity and inclusion being openly celebrated’. ‘Teaching is highly effective in promoting pupils’ excellent progress and attainment.’ (ISI Report). A relaxed but highly stimulating classroom environment promotes intellectual curiosity. Academic exploration and risk-taking are two essential ingredients in the school’s teaching. Girls leave for a range of top schools, including St Paul’s Girls’ School, JAGS, Alleyn’s and Wycombe Abbey.

Games & the Arts

Being regularly active enhances the girls’ physical and emotional health. They have access to excellent sports facilities both indoors and outdoors. Music and drama are strong and varied throughout the school, with most pupils playing at least one instrument, and all girls taking part in theatrical performances.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is about understanding and supporting each individual child. The House system, excellent form teachers and visible senior management team combine to ensure that each girl feels supported in her learning. A Head of Wellbeing supports all parents. The head says, ‘When the girls really feel that they’re cared for and happy in their learning environment, I really believe that the learning falls into place’ (The Good Schools Guide, 2023).

Recent Scholarships

In 2022 and 2023, the girls received an outstanding 41 Scholarships and Awards across Academics, Sport, Drama, Music and Art. This year these included Brighton College, Streatham & Clapham High School, Emanuel, Woldingham and Royal Russell.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The Good Schools Guide (2023) comments that for Mrs Fildes, ‘Teaching is clearly a vocation, spurred on by childhood experiences’. She says ‘I was never told ‘you can be anything you want to be’ and I really want our girls to think like that.’ Consequently, Mrs Fildes encourages the girls to find their confidence in STEAM learning and champions their individual interests and passions.

Outstanding Characteristics

There is a ‘sky is the limit’ approach to learning – anything is possible. Each girl is treated as a confident individual so that she can blossom academically, socially and behaviourally, ready to take on the world. Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School is part of Eaton House Schools and the Dukes Education family.
