Welcome to The Manor Preparatory School

Welcome to The Manor!  Our beautiful Georgian Manor House sits in the centre of a 9 acre site on the outskirts of Abingdon, about 9 miles south of Oxford and 8 miles north-west of Didcot. We are an independent co-educational day school that welcomes boys and girls aged 2-11.

Why The Manor Preparatory School?

We recognise every child as an individual; we want them to reach their potential and exceed it. We aim to provide opportunities for every young person in our care to find what they love to do, to be celebrated for it and to recognise it as a strength. Those opportunities abound in Music, Sport, Creative and Performing Arts as well as in a balanced, broad, inspiring, challenging and exciting academic curriculum.

Take a Look inside our School

“… The Manor is a wonderful school that seems to have got the balance just right… I cannot fault it… a wonderful, positive, caring, encouraging staff, great facilities, a manageable challenging age appropriate workload adapted to meet each pupil’s individual needs, a good balance of academics and extra curricular content that engages the children…”

Former Manor Parent

“I love The Manor because when I was younger I was not that good at sport but the staff inspired me to keep trying. Now I am doing schools biathlon and will soon be going to Florida to represent GB in an international biathlon competition! I would never have believed I could achieve so much but the staff help all of us feel proud of our achievements, at whatever level.”

Megan P, Pupil

“Naturally we are delighted with our daughter’s academic and sporting progress but just as important has been the way in which the school has taught her the abiding values of kindness, consideration, good manners and generosity of spirit.”
