Head PhotoFounded in 1947 and situated in Abingdon, close to Oxford and within easy reach of London by train, The Manor Preparatory School is a thriving, happy school of 375 pupils. The Manor currently welcomes girls 2 - 11 and boys 2 - 7. The Governors have recently announced that from September 2018 The Manor is looking forward to extending its co-educational provision into Year 3. Boys will then be able to progress through the school to the end of Year 6 alongside the girls, keeping families together.

The Manor has just received its ISI Inspection Reports from an Inspection that took place in 2017. We are delighted to announce that the news could not have been better - every area of school life received the highest possible rating of 'excellent' confirming the exceptional academic and personal development of every pupil as the school begins the transition to full co-education. Inspectors commented that "Pupils' personal development is strengthened by all staff who set excellent examples as role models to pupils."

The Manor has a wonderfully happy, creative atmosphere. The exceptionally caring and invigorating tone of the school ensures that children really do beam with happiness: they are delightfully self-confident and articulate. Laughter is an essential part of the school day in our community where children are both cherished and challenged.

The current Headmaster, Piers Heyworth is due to retire in December 2017; the new Headmaster, Alastair Thomas will join The Manor in January 2018. Mr Thomas is currently Head of The Elms School, a co-educational Prep School near Malvern.

The Manor has begun a comprehensive building programme and a new sports hall is currently under construction - completion September 2018
