Year 7 Parent: 1 son

The academic standards here are really high but they cater for all standards and abilities. My son does have special educational needs (SEN) which are perfectly catered for.

Year 8 Parent: 2 sons (98 seconds)

Academically, even for an independent school, they have a very high standard. The thing we appreciate the most is that the children are treated as individuals, not just as ‘a child’.

Year 1 Parent: 1 daughter 

I’ve used state schools for some of my five children. I think this school though tends to be able to give children the individual attention they need due to the class sizes being dramatically smaller.

Reception/Nursery Parent: 2 daughters

My oldest daughter started in the local primary school but I felt she was a bit lost among 30 children. They’re both obviously more confident since being here which is wonderful.

Year 4 Parent: 1 son

My son does wraparound care, which for me is great, as I have to work full-time. Most days, I pick him up about 4.30-5pm and to be honest, I struggle to get him away from the school.

Year 1 Parent: 1 daughter 

I was a former pupil, as were my brothers. I couldn’t think of another school to send my daughter to. The teachers are still some of the same and the memories I have of school here are the best.

Year 1 Parent: 2 sons

I like the nurturing environment here and that they do all sorts of fun things up in the woods that they wouldn’t get to do elsewhere like picking berries, baking pies, building camps. It’s super.

Year 3 Parent: 1 daughter 

The school looked a little bit like Hogwarts we thought on our first visit here. When you see other schools in and around and compare them with what this offers, it speaks for itself really.
 

Year 8 Parent: son & daughter

The academic standards are excellent. I think the school really gets the best out of the children. It’s a holistic approach. They look after the children socially, emotionally and academically.

Year 3 & Year 7 Parent: 2 sons

Sompting Abbotts is great for us having two boys. The fantastic grounds mean they’ve the freedom to run around, climb trees and use the year-round sports facilities. They love it here.

Year 2 and Nursery Parent: son & daughter

My wife is a teacher at an independent school so she used her experience working in that sector to look at the local schools. That’s why we chose here. The teaching staff here are wonderful.
