Why Danesfield Manor?

At Danesfield Manor School our mission has been to create the right conditions and culture so that every child that joins us thrives intellectually, culturally, physically and emotionally.

With small class sizes, the teachers and staff at Danesfield Manor School really know and understand the children as individuals. We believe in the importance of family and we want our school to have a ‘family feel’ throughout, creating a culture of kindness.

We want to nurture strong partnerships with parents so together, we can watch pupils thrive.

We are interested in how we can create motivated learners who embrace challenges, learn from their setbacks, know that they can grow in an environment where they are fully supported and learn skills that will prepare them for lifelong learning.

At every stage of teaching, mixed ability classes allow each pupil to achieve maximum personal success in all areas of learning. Our high academic standards are achieved by encouraging and nurturing each child to discover and celebrate their natural talents – be that academic, dramatic, musical, sporting or artistic.

From The Parents

My child loves attending Nursery and often asks to go on the days he is at home! I feel the staff are very caring of my child and ensure each day is exciting and interesting. They are a credit to the Early Years department!

"We continue to be very pleased with Danesfield for the level of thought that goes into looking after my daughter’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual/academic well being. We are particularly impressed with how accessible and comprehensive the leadership and teachers are to both children and parents. Thank you for all you do."
"Although we have only joined the school a few weeks ago, we have been very content of the experience we have had so far. Our son loves going to Danesfield, the children, teachers and staff have been very kind, embracing and welcoming. He’s academically supported and learns at school. We’re very happy with the school in all aspects."

From The Staff

I've really noticed how welcoming, friendly and helpful everyone is. It's also great to be part of a team that offers such a wide range of experiences for the children.

"Working at DMS is great – the children are so enthusiastic about their learning, and there’s always something interesting and different going on. My personal favourite is the whole school residential trip where we get to share new experiences with the children and see them grow as people in just one fun-packed week!"
