School Reviews

We love this school and our kids don''t want to leave at the end of the day. The teachers are passionate, the class sizes are small and the teaching is of a high standard. The best part is my kids (9 and 7) are empowered to take responsibility for their learning, something very unique that will help them in the future. Finally, worth mentioning the varied curriculum which includes a daily hour of sport, 3 hours of music, 3 hours of languages and 2 hours of art a week.
