What our parents say

  • Thoroughly enjoyed,

    My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Hopelands – and our youngest now goes too. The children you meet there are rounded, polite, confident young people from such an early age – and that’s a fantastic start in life.

  • A happy place,

    Happy, smiling children with a passion for learning.

  • Children's best interests,

    A school where the children’s best interests are at the heart of the ethos.

  • Above and beyond,

    The school goes above and beyond with extra-curricular activities.

  • Children get a good start,

    If you want your child to have a good start in secondary school - be it grammar, private, or state - this school sets the building blocks very well indeed.

  • Teachers know your child,

    Each teacher really takes the time to get to know your child and this manifests itself in confident, polite and happy children, of every ability.

  • Small class sizes,

    The small class sizes and excellent teaching staff ensure that every child is known and is encouraged to fulfil his or her individual potential.

  • Thrived academically,

    Not only has my daughter thrived academically, she has also been introduced to a love of sports which were not on offer at her previous school. I am certain that she will leave Hopelands with the life skills she needs to confidently enter secondary education.

  • A huge relief,

    Moving from state school where both of my children were coming home saying they were bored it has been a huge relief to find that they are now stimulated mentally and loving the diversity of opportunities that are presented, Though the school has limited sports facilities, the teachers are incredibly resourceful.  Our children have had so many more opportunities than they had in their much larger state school, where they were decidedly unfit.  It is good practice that they are also taught how to do the correct stretching and warm up exercises prior to sport, which will be  a good  investment for the rest of their lives.
