Manor House


And kindness go a long way.
Nothing stops us from working wonderfully.
Our school will always be the best.
Reindeer run in always fun.
Others makes us happy.
Until we succeed, we
Shall never
Ever stop!





KG-M1 have been busy studying 'reflection' in Art, and linking their work with 'symmetry' in Maths. Here are some of the effects we created using the 'fold and print' method, and some of the examples we were aiming for:

Manor House School is a former Victorian manor house which has retained all of its original charm and many of its original features. Its idyllic location between Ashby's historic castle and the town's 13th Century parish church only add to its beauty and grandeur.

This Gallery gives visitors a glimpse of just some of the building's most notable - but often overlooked - features, including its picturesque grounds.

The charm and tradition of Manor House School continue to bring something very special to all sorts of modern day events.
