It is important to us here at Manor House School that we engage with our local community. We have a wonderful location and superb facilities and we try to share these with other groups where it is possible to do so. The local WI, Bookham Belles, meets here regularly on a Monday evening and we have more recently welcomed Bookham Choral Society.
Manor House School girls support a variety of charities. There are 3 School Houses; Discovery, Victory and Endeavour. Each Manor House girl will be assigned a House on joining the School and will support nominated charities throughout the academic year.
Each September we host a fund-raising breakfast for Macmillan Cancer Care, which is open to girls, their friends, parents and staff. This is always an enjoyable and well-supported occasion and we have raised over £9,000 in recent years for Surrey Macmillan – over £1450 raised in September 2016. In addition, Manor House School is one of the few schools that continues to support the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild and we make up a large number of shoebox presents as part of Operation Christmas Child.
Other charities that we support include:
- The Grange Residential Care Home
- LeatherHEAD START
- The Children’s Trust
- All Saints Church
- The Meeting Place
- Make a Wish
- Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
Last year we raised in excess of £10,400 for charities both local, national and international – an amazing achievement for a school of our size.
