Principal's Welcome

Danesfield Manor School

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Danesfield Manor! Our school is a fun place to be; it offers children a welcoming environment where they are safe to make mistakes and learn from them, where they can take on challenges and know they will be supported.

We are a school with many traditions but we are not traditional. We achieve excellent examination results but we are not examination driven.

Our children leave us fully prepared for the next step in their education.

We want every child to exceed even their own expectations but we want them to do so by understanding that they will achieve more if they have a good, confident self-image, are motivated to learn and are self-disciplined.

At our school children receive an education which combines traditional learning with a modern curriculum.  We believe that the ‘hidden curriculum' - the implicit teaching that develops a child’s confidence and self-esteem - is vital.

You will find on this page a testimonial from one of our parents describing what made her choose Danesfield Manor for her child. My team and I were incredibly proud to read this; it’s a genuine illustration of what we offer our pupils – and their parents

I look forward to meeting you very soon at our next Open Day, or do not hesitate to contact me via the school office if you would like to arrange a visit at a time to suit you.
