My favourite lessons are Geography, because we get to learn about plants, and Science, when we do experiments. I like it when we get to play, too!

Welcome to Manor House School
Manor House School is an independent day school in Leicestershire, for boys and girls aged four to 16 years.
Set in picturesque surroundings beside the historic castle of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, the school has a long and proud tradition of preparing children for every stage of their education, from Kindergarten to GCSE.
Unlike many other private schools in Leicestershire, Manor House School assesses pupils both on their academic performance and their ability to fit into the school's close-knit community.
GCSE results are consistently above the national average.
Two free taster days are offered to all prospective pupils. During this time, they take part in lessons and school activities, and are assessed on their suitability for a place at the school.
Class sizes are limited to no more than 20 pupils, to ensure that all children receive the individual attention, help and guidance they need to succeed.
Pupils are encouraged to fulfil their academic potential but also to develop other valuable skills and qualities, as part of their personal development. The school offers a varied programme of extra curricular activities, in which sport, music and drama feature prominently.
For busy families, the school runs a breakfast club from 7.30am and an after-school club until 6pm.
Manor House School has excellent transport links to the Midlands and beyond. As a result, the school is easily accessible to pupils from a wide geographical area, including Ashby, Loughborough, Burton-on-Trent, Castle Donington, Market Bosworth, Markfield and Derby.
The school's unique combination of traditional values, family atmosphere and high educational standards ensures that all Manor House pupils leave the school well-prepared for life in today’s challenging, global society.
