Challenge. Cherish. Inspire.
private school oxford



My name is Nicole Burroughs and I am the Director of Admissions here at The Manor. I was also, until quite recently, a ‘Manor Mum’.  My son and daughter, now 13 and 15, both spent many happy years at The Manor before moving on to take up Year 7 places at Abingdon School and Headington School.

I am delighted that you are interested in a Manor education for your child and would be very happy to send you a prospectus to give you a flavour of what we have to offer. Please complete the contact form below and we will put a prospectus in the post to you straight away.

We pride ourselves on the happy and varied learning experience we provide and by far the best way to get get a feel for how we challenge, cherish and inspire every child is to meet us and see our school. Please contact me via the form below, by email or by phone and it will be my pleasure to set up a visit for you comprising of a meeting with our Headmaster, Mr Alastair Thomas, and a tour of the school with me. Private visits to the school can be arranged at a time to suit you or we would love to see you at one of our forthcoming Open Events, listed below.

This is the very beginning of your Manor journey and I very much look forward to hearing from you and helping you every step of the way.

Mrs Nicole Burroughs
Director of Admissions, Communications and Marketing
