Parent Reviews

“Her interview was unarguably the best they’d witnessed – how confident she was, how well she articulated her speech and generally on her overall personality.” Feedback from grammar school head following Form 6 pupil interview (February 2024)

Our children have settled really well into school life at Branwood, and their transition from Nursery to pre-school has been wonderful. It is very much like an extension of my family – it is a ‘family’ orientated school and there is always a member of staff happy to help. Mrs Authe-Martin (Feb 2023)

The quality of teaching and education. Small class sizes allowing more attention for each child. Teachers are easily accessible. The school itself is easily accessible and well kept. The children have access to a good range of extra-curricular activities. My daughter feels comfortable and supported at Branwood. Mrs Foggon (Feb 2023)

‘Branwood is not just a great school but a little community for our daughter to grow in. Since starting KG1 a few months ago she has come on leaps and bounds, both socially and academically. We are extremely happy with our choice of school.’ Mrs S Sultan (Feb 2023)

‘Our daughter was new to Branwood in form 3 as Covid hit. We couldn’t have been happier with how welcome Matilda was made to feel and the care and consideration that were shown to us as parents and to Matilda despite the challenges of hybrid schooling. From the moment she joined Matilda has felt valued and cared for at Branwood.’ Sarah Welsh and Neil McCann (Feb 2023)

‘My daughter had a late start to Branwood Preparatory, as we just moved to the country last year. We couldn’t have made a better choice as we’ve felt that this school is so welcoming, safe, well organised and well rounded. Since September my daughter has grown both academically and socially and has been exposed to a variety of activities outside of the classroom, such as forest school, violin, recorder, gymnastics, debate club and more. My daughter is excited to go to school each day, as she has built great relationships with both the pupils and staff. I highly recommend this school as I am super pleased with everything it has to offer.’ Chauntée Thompson (Feb 2023)

‘The school does an excellent job of ensuring that the children are challenged, but also really happy. This is such an important balance and I’ll never regret the decision to move the children to Branwood.’ Charles Blackwell (Feb 2023)

‘Fantastic school, with staff who focus on learning through play (KG1). My son has so much fun each and every day, but equally is developing great skills through counting, phonics, writing his name and also in his overall creativity and imagination!’ Heather (Feb 2023)

‘Branwood staff genuinely care about the children and go above and beyond to ensure they are happy and making good progress academically. My son loves Branwood and feels like a valued member of the school community.’ Helen (Feb 2023)

‘My wife and I visited a number of schools in the area but it was clear at an early stage that Branwood was the number one choice. Our two eldest are now at the school and our youngest will join in due course. The teaching is excellent and the teachers/staff clearly and genuinely care about the pupils and their education. I have no hesitation in recommending Branwood to anyone looking for a top quality, diverse and caring school for their children.’ G Martin (Feb 2023)
