Madam 5 has loved her first year

4/ 5

Nice school which we chose over others because it seemed less about the bling factor and more about learning and development.

So far so good for us and it\’s clear the teachers are dedicated along with the teaching assistants an integral role to early development.

The older kids are on the same campus until August and i think it works well but appreciate it\’s expanded over the years. I can tell a good school by it\’s older students sometimes and they are delightful especially at events like the school fete.

Teachers are approachable and engaging however we try and let them crack on with it after all they are the experts.

For this partly came down to location but we haven\’t been disappointed at all.
