Manor House School is reviving a tradition – We are making our award-winning Nursery co-educational again and welcoming boys from January 2017.

Earlier this year, the Manor House Nursery was named one of the Top 10 in the South East – one of only two in Surrey to gain this accolade. Now we will be turning the clock back by making Nursery places available to boys again.

New Headteacher Tracey Fantham said: “Manor House School will remain an all-girls school and retain the unique environment that makes it so special. But so many parents have asked if our Nursery could start accepting boys again – so we are happy to accommodate them.”

“This may seem unusual for an all-girls school but it revives an old Manor House tradition. Our Nursery used to be co-educational in the past.”

Our ‘Music and Movement’ Toddler Group held on Thursday mornings during term-time at 9.30am is currently enjoyed by both boys and girls, as is our ‘Stay and Play’ facility on Monday afternoons from 1.30-3.00pm.

Manor House Nursery traces its origins back to the Spinney Nursery School which was at Merrylands Farm. It moved to join Manor House School in the mid 1980s. The Nursery operated as a self contained unit and took boys from three years old until the late 1990s when it became an all-girls setting.

We will be showcasing the Nursery and Pre-Prep facilities, teaching and outdoor learning provision at a Nursery and Reception Open Morning at 9.30am on Thursday 24 November.

We are simplifying our Nursery fee structure (allowing the option for a morning, day or extended day) and also amending our opening hours, enabling parents to use the facility from 8am.
