Challenge. Cherish. Inspire.


Welcome! My name is Karen Copson and I have been Director of Admissions and Communications at The Manor for over 13 years, welcoming children of all ages and from all over the world.

I would love to take you on a tour of our school and to send you a prospectus.

Tours of the school can now take place both virtually via video call or in person. I would very much like the opportunity to talk to you about a Manor education and to arrange for you to speak with our Headmaster, Alastair Thomas.  Please add your details to the form below and I will contact you or please feel free to email me or give me a call.  I very much look forward to hearing from you.
