Founded in 1907 and situated in Abingdon, the Manor Preparatory School is an independent co-educational preparatory day school that welcomes boys and girls aged 2-11.

The school has a wonderfully happy, creative atmosphere where every individual is valued and nurtured to reach their potential. The Manor's most recent ISI Inspection took place in April 2017, with every area of school life receiving the highest possible rating of 'Excellent'. Inspectors commented that "Pupils approach every day with an overwhelming passion to learn and develop."

This is in part due to the exceptionally caring and invigorating tone of the school, where laughter is an essential part of the school day, and also by children's personal development being further strengthened by staff who act as excellent role models. Every child is encouraged to push themselves to new challenges and fulfil their own potential, resulting in outstanding results academically, on the sports field, and in creative and performing arts.

The school has an excellent record in ensuring leavers move on to the next school that is perfectly suited to each individual. Scholarships, awards and exhibitions feature highly in all areas.

Completion of a new Sports Hall in September 2018 underpins the exciting development programme that is underway, and extends even further the breadth of opportunities that are on offer to the children.

The school aims to simplify the logistics of family life as well, and so have created an extensive daily bus service covering Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Wiltshire, and fully flexible wraparound care.
