Excellent PTA - very supportive - determined to keep the school personal and an individuality which large schools can't manage.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
New head is brilliant - worth his weight in gold. Really caring atmosphere. The school has had to deal with a number of important financial concerns recently, but it is clear they have a strategy for making the school even better. We love the school and will fight to keep it as good as it can be. We love it, the headmaster and the staff. The best school in the country as far as we are concerned.
