Elmgreen School

Elmcourt Rd, West Norwood, London SE27 9BZ, UK – 020 8766 5020

Both my children have been through the school from year 7 to year 13 - the younger one is now in year 13. They have both had very positive experiences. As a parent I would say there is excellent support from both teachers and the senior management team. The school involves and informs parents in and about their child's education in a way none of my friends with children at other schools have experienced. This is a safe, secure and caring environment where staff strive to help every student achieve their full potential.

This is the best secondary school I have ever been to. I am now a sixth form student and have been at the school for over 5 years. It is an inclusive school for everyone no matter their academic ability. My teachers have been kind and supportive. I'm very happy with my choice of school. Message me for details.

Oakfield Preparatory School

126-128 Thurlow Park Rd, London SE21 8HP, UK – 020 8670 4206

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to all 400 students of Oakfield Preparatory School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff, who helped me move the heavy dome into the hall and also brought me a mug of tea. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. I was even treated to lunch. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, learning about the Moon, travelling through the Solar System and even discovering Natural Selection with Charles Darwin. Thank you Oakfield Preparatory School for a very pleasant visit.

Excellent school. I have visited several times and always been very impressed. Great facilities, high standards and friendly atmosphere too.

Your history is a bit off. There was a Gym on the top floor. I was a student in the 1960's. Boy and girls were still seperated then. Girls had their own plyground. There were 4 classrooms on each floor. Stephen

My granddaughter attends this school, and it is just great. They give the children lots of opportunities to excel and to participate in fun and educational activities. They have good after school and breakfast clubs, both providing good support for parents at reasonable prices. There is excellent communication between teachers and parents and pupils.

Great School,Parents are kept updated real time and you can see the progress of your kids every few weeks.

Brilliant bespoke service. We have used several of their tutors, who were outstanding. Friendly, efficient agency who respond quickly and really care about the service they are providing. Best agency in South London

We just wanted to thank our lovely tutor, Stephen. Our son achieved places at both the schools he applied for and having been more maths leaning has now with Stephen's guidance and engaging tutorials developed a genuine passion for literature which I hope will continue!
