What Parents say about our school



It has actually been a very un-stressful, very engaging and enjoyable day. My child has remained engaged and focused, it's been a pleasure to work with him. Thank you so much for everything    


The structure of the live lessons and the information that is shared has made it easy for us to juggle our day around to ensure our daughter is not missing out on her learning. She enjoys being able to see her friends and interacting with the online learning.    


Simple to do as lots of information in different places. Our daughter loves the lessons on-line as she can follow what is being taught and sees her friends. 



Proximity and quality of education following school visit, which was impressive.​


We are very impressed by the facilities, diversity and approach to teaching at the school.  the school's efforts and support our child in an effective manner. ​


We strongly believe in the school's ethos.​


I was very impressed by the Head at this school.​


We have family and friends who recommended this school because they are excited about the creativity and education of the children​.


We were impressed with the friendly atmosphere and the attention to musical education. It would be a great fit for our son.​


On our Open Day visit, as parents we liked the fact there was an emphasis on education, lots of open space and a calm atmosphere. It was impressive to see different types of resources available in school to enhance children’s learning.​


Like the vision of the Head.​


The introduction of the Forest School in 2020 was also encouraging and a key reason for choosing this school. The children seemed calm and attentive. Their behaviour was good and they seemed to be eager to learn.​



In November 2018 parents and carers were asked to review Aylward and also provide a star rating.
