The success of Preston Manor School is built on an 80-year old reputation which continues to flourish through its committed staff, dedicated Governors and supportive parents. 


We are an all-through co-operative school with students ranging from 4 – 19 years.  Staff are expected to make the most of this all through provision and to liaise with relevant colleagues in all parts of the school. The school is over two sites and there may be times when colleagues are expected to work across both sites with students. 


We value working in partnership together with our young people to achieve the best outcomes for every student that joins our prestigious school. The school is oversubscribed for places, reflecting the reputation the school has for its academic rigour and excellence in teaching and learning.


We are proud of our focus on student and staff wellbeing, which is evident from the moment you step into our community. We are driven in our aims and ambitions and aspire to continue to build on our success in a supportive and friendly environment.

Music is a Roland Champion School and Music Academy (a large scale Saturday Community Music School). The school was the inaugural winner of the prestigious 2015 Mayor of London’s Music Excellence in Schools award. The department (and the wider Faculty of Performing Arts) regularly contributes to borough and many in school events and performances.
