The Curriculum

Manor House pupils follow a wide curriculum generally taking 9-10 GCSEs supported by a strong co-curricular enrichment programme. Pupils are encouraged to partake fully in school life and develop their individual talents in Art, Drama, Music and Sport.

Games & The Arts

The Elizabeth Green Hall provides an indoor sports /large assembly/performance hall for music/drama productions.  There is an outdoor heated swimming pool, five floodlit tennis and netball courts, hockey and rounders pitches, athletics track and purpose-built Art/Textiles studio with dedicated Drama and Music rooms. 

Pastoral Care

Three school houses underpin the pastoral provision and there are various inter-house competitions including ‘House Arts’ and various sporting galas. Class sizes and form groups are smaller (maximum 20) allowing staff to know all the girls individually. 

University Places

In almost all cases, Manor House girls gain places at their first choice of sixth form or university destination. 

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

My belief is that inspirational schools transform lives and, at Manor House, we aim to ensure that all pupils achieve and experience more than they ever thought was possible.  Our objective is to develop happy young women who love coming to school and who have confidence in their abilities to learn and succeed yet, when the time is right, are eager to enter the real world to apply the skills and knowledge that they have learned.

Outstanding Characteristics

Girls here learn together at their own pace, develop confidence to take risks, choose any field of study without stereotypical influence, grow in emotional intelligence and show compassion for others while honing life and leadership skills for the future.
