What the school says...
The Manor is within easy reach of both Oxford and many of its surrounding villages; we warmly welcome boys, aged 2 - 7, and girls, aged 2 - 11, into our happy and stimulating environment in which every child can develop academically and socially.
The teaching provision at The Manor is very broad with Science, ICT, Art, Design Technology, Music, Physical Education and French all taught within the curriculum. Mandarin and Spanish are taught as club options. There are two school orchestras, two choirs, three String Ensembles, a Wind Band, a Harp Ensemble and a Guitar Band. We regularly welcome over 300 children from local schools to our singing day. Enthusiastic games teaching includes swimming, netball, football, tennis, mini-tennis, athletics and other summer sports.
At the heart of the school is a core of shared values, which reflect our ethos, and which permeate every aspect of Manor life. These values foster high standards of behaviour and achievement, support a framework of respect, promote self-confidence and provide a warm, harmonious environment in which our children learn, thrive and are prepared for their future. ...Read more

Mr Heyworth’s inspiring talk on heroic failure was illustrated not only with famous examples (Eddie the Eagle) but also anecdotes from staff and pupils.
