What The Good Schools Guide says..
A charming, small, friendly school, ideal for girls who need a caring environment to reach their full potential, be they very academic or otherwise. Parents generally like the small size, especially at the younger end, feeling, 'It's a good choice for a quiet child,' but sometimes find that 'in such a small environment one girl can upset the applecart'...
What the school says...
Manor House School is a selective independent day school for girls aged 2 to 16 in Bookham, Surrey.
The school was established in 1920 and delivers strong academic results alongside highly individualised learning and outstanding pastoral care in a smaller, friendly school setting. Staff get to know all of the pupils individually and recognise and develop each girl's talents. In recent years, Manor House School has consistently produced the best GCSE girls' school results in the Mole Valley area.
There is the option to to take GCSE subjects early as part of the Gift and Talented policy for girls with particular strengths in subjects and tailor an A Level programme to their needs. Some girls take additional GCSEs, such as Psychology or Creative Writing, to broaden their knowledge.
Life at Manor House provides opportunities for pupils to explore their creative side, particularly through participation in music, art and drama productions, or to develop their physical skills in a variety of sports, dance clubs and outdoor activities. There are around 50 different extra curricular clubs per term that the girls can take part in at lunchtimes or after school.
The relationships between older and younger girls at Manor House School are very special. House events go across the age groups and older girls mentor new girls as they arrive. These opportunities help to build leadership qualities that the girls rely on in later life.
Manor House Schools welcomes individual visits and tours at a time to suit families. There are additionally three open morning events per year in October, February and May. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since September 2016, Tracey Fantham BA MA NPQH, previously headteacher of Blenheim High School in Epsom, one of Surrey's leading state schools.
The range of abilities is genuinely broad, from high flyers who want to work without pressure to those who struggle with academia. GCSE results are excellent from such a spectrum, pitching the school well against the local competition – 38 per cent A*/A grades. Most popular GCSE subjects are art, Spanish, French, geography and science - around half do triple science. High flyers in English can take GCSE a year early. Nice to see plenty of vocational options at GCSE – food and nutrition, child development, art, music, PE and drama.
Parents feel confident in the teaching, saying, ‘The lines of communication are very open,’ and, ‘They cover...
Special Education Needs
In line with the pastoral support at Manor House, it is recognised that students at any stage of their schooling may have a need which affects their ability to relate to parts of the curriculum. We aim to identify and meet the educational needs of each girl to maintain confidence, self-esteem, love of learning and help girls to achieve their full potential. Each girl's progress is closely monitored and assessed by observation and formal assessment in order to identify girls who are in need of extra support. We recognise that each girl is an individual and support is designed to meet the individual needs. The Academic Advancement department works closely with the teachers in each department, and girls who have received support have gone on to achieve excellent results in their examinations.
