Every child and member of staff belongs to one of our four houses, named after inspirational people with a link to Didcot.
Throughout the year, we hold house events and competitions, providing opportunities for children to represent their house and contribute towards its success. At the start of each school year, Year 6 pupils can apply to be a House Captain, Deputy or Prefect and the successful candidates then lead their house for that year.
House Captains also lead our School Council and Deputies lead our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
Having the opportunity to contribute to their house is something that all Manor children aspire to and provides them with leadership and teamwork skills for the future.
