Danesfield information: Danesfield Manor School is an independent school for pupils aged 2 to 11 years. Sited in and around a Victorian house in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, the school promotes traditional values in support of a complete education. Despite being non-selective, our children obtain places at some of the best independent schools in the area including some with scholarships, and we work with parents to find the right place for each child. A combination of good staff, high standards and a great deal of hard work has resulted in Danesfield Manor School gaining an excellent reputation locally and providing a model for many others to follow. At its heart is a desire to see every child exceed even their own expectations, but 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.
