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.

Whilst unfortunately all visits to the school have been currently suspended owing to the Coronavirus pandemic, I would very much like the opportunity to speak to you about a Manor education and to arrange for you to speak with our Headmaster, Alastair Thomas or take a virtual tour of the school.   I very much look forward to hearing from you.
