Home Education Partnership

Every family is different: we all have different values, talents, experiences and priorities. But we all have the same goal as parents – to raise our children as best we can, to develop their individual potential and skills. Mannafields exists to aid parents in that task, whether through full-time schooling, part-time home-education partnership or individual classes.

We know that each family has different needs, and so we provide flexible options to enable parents to choose the form of education that suits their child. With over 25 years of experience teaching children from ages 5-14, we ensure that pupils receive excellent tuition and individual care and nurturing.

Our small class sizes and diverse student base provide a safe and stimulating learning environment, whilst our project-based curriculum encourages the development of individual interests and high academic standards.

At the heart of our school ethos and curriculum is a commitment to teaching our students from a Christ-centred, Biblical perspective. This is the foundation for each lesson and our teaching staff live out the ethos in their attitudes and interactions with the students.

We believe that parents are the most important educators in their children’s lives, and so we welcome parental involvement in all areas of school life.

Mannafields works with parents to thoroughly equip the next generation with the skills, academic ability and character that they need make a difference in this world.
