"I have to say that our experience has been very good and really positive over that last 7 years. We chose Manor House School for its small class sizes and family values, also we didn't want our boys to get 'lost in the system'. Both our eldest child and currently our younger child have gone to school very happy every day. The teachers and staff are always positive, polite and most of all approachable, any concerns are dealt with quickly and effectively. I am really proud to drive up the school drive every day to this beautiful historic building in the safe knowledge that my child will be cared for in the same way as he is at home. Our eldest child reached his full potential with 9 GCSEs and is now doing A Levels and is a course leader, he came to Manor House with no self confidence and is now doing presentations at college about Space! and I am sure our youngest child will also reach his full potential. That's all you can ask for as a parent. The school offers a fantastic education along with a family atmosphere that promotes good manners and behaviour. Every child really does matter at Manor House." - Parent Testimonial, January 2016
