Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to The Manor!  Our beautiful Georgian Manor House sits in the centre of a 9 acre site on the outskirts of Abingdon, about 9 miles south of Oxford and 8 miles north-west of Didcot. We are an independent co-educational day school that welcomes boys and girls aged 2-11.

The Manor’s spirit, warmth and dynamism have made it thrive for over 100 years and we are very proud of our exceptionally happy, creative and colourful school.  Our children are delightfully self-confident and articulate and there are many opportunities for everyone to shine.  Above all we strive to ensure that our children develop a love of learning and make the very most of their abilities, encouraging and challenging them to give of their best and to be the best that they can be.
Completion of our new sports hall in September 2018 underpins the exciting development programme that is underway and extends even further the breadth of opportunities that are on offer to the children.
We very much hope that you enjoy reading our website and that it does what it aims to do, which is to give you a brief glimpse of life at The Manor.  We would be delighted to welcome you, to see what we do for yourselves.  That will allow you to see first hand the way in which a Manor education can benefit all children, and is the only way to experience our positive environment.

We would love to tell you more. Please do call us to make an appointment or to find out about our Open Mornings.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
