Manor House School pupils – Introducing Individual Academic Prowess…

An A* in every subject, an A grade A Level One Year Early and a Year 7 GCSE! Introducing Individual Academic Prowess…

Deputy Head Girl, Amy Norman, achieved an A* in all 11 of her GCSE subjects including English and Mathematics and will go on to study A Levels at Kings College, Wimbledon, in her chosen areas of  Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.

Sophie Smith achieved A* in all of her 10 GCSE subjects and was also studying one year early for her AS Level in Creative Writing.   Astoundingly, Sophie achieved full marks (100%) in the Creative Writing AS examination.   These excellent academic results will be added to Sophie’s Religious Studies GCSE in which she obtained an A grade one year early in Summer 2014.

Congratulations are also extended to Nadine Reeves for achieving 12 A*-A’s, Hannah Penny for achieving 9 A*/A’s and Jenny Hobbs for 8 A*/A’s .

One Year 7 girl at Manor House gained an A* in her French GCSE, four years early!  Even with an aptitude for French, this demonstrates academic prowess way beyond one’s years.

GCSE performance was strong again this year with a significant number of pupils at Manor House School achieving better than baseline predictions suggested in their final examinations.

In Geography, 65% of girls achieved A*-A, a testament to the dedication of Mrs Grindrod, Head of Humanities.

Despite a national decline in the number of pupils taking Languages at GCSE (source: National Statistics), Manor House School has focused on promoting Languages as a GCSE option.  This paid off with pupils performing very well academically in French and Spanish.

Two-thirds of girls who sat separate Sciences achieved top grades. And nearly three-quarters of girls who sat Art and Music also achieved top grades.

Well done to all of our girls for working so hard and our congratulations on their individual academic successes.


Manor House School is a selective independent day school for girls aged 2-16 years. Our School excels in delivering highly individualised learning and outstanding pastoral care in a smaller school setting. Our smaller size allows our teaching staff to truly get to know all of our pupils individually by developing each and every girl’s talents at whichever stage of her schooling she may be. We build a confidence in learning through our nurturing ethos and our all girls’ environment gives our pupils the self-confidence to become all they wish to be. Each and every girl is able to reach her full academic potential.
