Breaking Ground for our new Sports Hall

19th July 2017

There’s no rest at The Manor Preparatory School in Abingdon during the Summer Holidays this year – as soon as the school broke up at the end of term, the diggers moved in to start building our brand new Sports Hall! 
To mark the occasion, staff and the pupils attending Manor Fun gathered together on the field for a ‘breaking ground’ ceremony with speeches from our Headmaster Piers Heyworth and Chair of Governors, Shaun Forrestal. The event was completed with a toast of juice cartons and a celebratory chocolate bar each.
As the school seeks to continue to provide the very best facilities for its pupils, it continues to review, improve, update and enhance its facilities. As the requirements in education continue to evolve The Manor wishes to continue to be a modern, forward-thinking school and to achieve this, the buildings and facilities need to keep pace with this vision. Therefore, this July, The Manor begins a comprehensive building programme starting with a Sports Hall which will be ready by September 2018.
David Ramm, the school’s Bursar says
“These are very exciting times for the school as The Manor embarks on a comprehensive building programme starting with this magnificent sports hall.”
