Bricklehurst Manor School was founded in 1959 as an independent day school for boys and girls. Today, it remains a flourishing co-educational ISI school with its own high achieving Kindergarten and a reputation for happy children who go onto their next schools with a keen, sensible attitude towards learning and the ability to think and work independently and with enjoyment.
The building has a rich history. Previously a private house, with records to show that the house dates back to the thirteenth century, Bricklehurst retains many home-like characteristics not least a friendly, family atmosphere which helps young children bridge the gap between home and school, enabling them to gain confidence in the security of familiar surroundings.
Throughout the school’s history it has always had a family focus, from when it began in 1959 with just 45 children. The present owner and Principal Christine Flowers has retained the school as a family run business. Together with her daughter Laura Latimore and son Richard Flowers they work tirelessly to improve facilities, broaden the curriculum and deliver an exemplary education whilst retaining the family feel that makes Bricklehurst so unique.
