Virtual Joiner Pack

Welcome!

Our ‘Virtual Joiner Pack’ is relevant to any new starters at Manor House School, joining our School up to the end of the Summer term 2021. This page will be updated and a new update released to new pupils and their families who are joining the Manor House community from September 2021.

Our VJP has been designed to provide new families (and current families at the School whose child is transitioning into Reception, Year 3 or Year 7), with all the relevant information required to start the new academic year.

1. JOINER HANDBOOKS AND CLASSLIST

Please read the Joiner Handbook, as applicable to your child’s age/entry point.

  • Our Prep School Joiner Handbook is for families in Reception Class to Year 6.
  • Our Senior School Joiner Handbook is for families in our Senior School from Years 7+.
  • You will be sent an invitation to join Classlist, our school community app for parents, at the start of the academic year, or upon joining us mid-year. Please look out for the invite in your inbox and you can find out more about Classlist here.
