Challenge. Cherish. Inspire.


Welcome! My name is Karen Copson and I have been Director of Admissions and Communications at The Manor for over 12 years. I have the daily pleasure of a window into the classrooms. I am always overwhelmed by the happy engagement that is palpable around the school; but please don’t take my word for it, come and see for yourself.

I will be delighted to guide you through the admissions process. You can contact me at any time to request a prospectus, arrange a visit or simply ask a question.

Where Next

School Closed

In line with Government advice and in conjunction with schools up and down the country, we are very sorry that until further notice, The Manor Preparatory School is closed, although we are operating a skeleton staff at this time for children of our Key Worker families. Although our doors may be closed, our lines of communication remain very firmly open and if you have an admissions enquiry or a general school query, please use the following number 07906 848945 which will be manned between 8:00am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday, with the facility to leave a message if required. We look forward to welcoming back our children as soon as possible.
