Life at Manor House School

As we look forward to celebrating our 100-year anniversary in 2020, life at Manor House School continues to be vibrant and creative on a day to day basis. School productions, music concerts and individual performances illustrate the breadth and depths of pupils’ creativity. Drama, Art and Music continue to play a major part in the life of the school promoting creative expression and positive self-esteem.

Academically, we have again surpassed expectations in our GCSE results and we continue to track, monitor and support all girls in their quest for academic excellence.

The special and enduring ethos that we feel on a day to day basis is important to us. Whilst each section of the school has grown in the last two years, we continue to reinforce and instil the values and qualities that enable our girls to develop into confident, happy and well-rounded individuals.

Our new uniform has been a successful change and our smartly dressed sports teams continue to make their mark enjoying a range of success across many different activities.

We are very proud of our beautiful environment and aim to provide the best facilities that we can, creating an inspiring teaching and learning environment for our pupils and staff. Improving facilities for sport and the creative arts remains a priority.

‘To love is to live’ was chosen as the school motto in 1921 by the Bishop of Plymouth. Today, we wish our pupils to ‘love learning’; to be engaged and curious learners who enjoy the opportunities offered. We encourage our pupils to ‘love each other’; to be members of our community who demonstrate kindness, respect, celebrate diversity and develop leadership skills. Finally, to ‘love themselves ‘; pupils who develop positive self-esteem, confidence and responsibility.
