I Am Looking For

The Good Schools Guide Review of Beech House

Their view

Large, bustling infant school (three forms per year group, with 25 children in each form) housed in a beautiful, modern, architect-designed building. Bright, airy classrooms. Large outdoor spaces with plenty of colourful equipment; ‘we have lessons out there in the real fresh air,’ a year 2 girl tells us. Lots of computers (all classes have their own blog) and kindles for reading. ‘Parents are blown away by the facilities when they first come here,’ says one parent. ‘Mrs Northin seems to get whatever she asks for’. French taught from reception right through to year 2 by a native French speaker, and specialist teachers for music and PE also. Budding Beethovens can take piano lessons at extra cost in the school's own piano room. Fully trained SENCo, and school will assess its ability to cope with special needs on an individual basis in consultation with parents. Lift access to all floors.

‘My sons are having the time of their lives here,’ one parent told us, and this seemed to be the case in the oh, so cute reception ballet class we saw.

This is a smashing school, a welcoming place, where busy children can get on with learning in a happy and secure atmosphere, whilst having lots of fun to boot.
