Manor House School is situated on a beautiful, seventeen acre site in Surrey’s commuter belt. The 17th century Manor House sits amidst formal areas around a main front lawn with a natural wildlife area and an orchard. The School was voted one of the UK’s most beautiful schools in 2016.

In addition to well resourced classrooms, our facilities include a purpose-built, light filled Art/Textiles studio with kiln, a dedicated Music room complete with a suite of iMacs with Logic, Garageband and Sibelius to improve music technology skills and a mirrored Drama room for LAMDA lessons.
We have two ICT suites to train girls on the latest PC and Apple technology, whilst our Language Laboratory means that all language groups can improve their confidence in spoken language. Pupils benefit from a fit-for-purpose Science block providing separate Chemistry, Physics and Biology laboratories whilst the Elizabeth Green Hall acts as a Sports/Theatre/Assembly Hall. In addition there is a second (Arcot) Hall in the Manor House itself. A spacious Food Technology facility with dedicated practical work stations allows girls to work independently in kitchen conditions.
The School has developing Sports facilities which currently include an open-air heated swimming pool, five floodlit Tennis and Netball courts, Hockey and Football pitches, Cricket nets and an athletics track.
The Library Resource centre is an important part of Manor House School life and is open every day for girls to do research and for quiet study, as well as for the reading and enjoyment of books. The Librarian is available to give help, advice and support to pupils in all areas of the curriculum. All pupils from Nursery to Year 11 can use and borrow books and regular library lessons are held up to Year 6 to help with literacy skills and to encourage reading. The Library has a stock of over 16,000 fiction and non-fiction books and resources split into 3 main areas: Prep, Senior and Careers. PC’s are available for girls to use for research and work and the Library hosts the iPad charging station. Authors are invited into School on a regular basis and Library takes part in World Book Day, Children’s Book Week and Guildford Book Festival.
