School Reviews

My kids have been in this school for 3 years now and I have to say it has been a wonderful experience watching them grow so much socially and academically. The teachers and classroom assistants are very understanding, they listen to your concerns and are caring and nurturing. My kids have made good friends and love the new experiences. The head of school and vice head are also very good. Together they make a nice team and have helped the school grow in the right direction.
