What our past parents have said about us…


Thank you so much for a wonderful year. Ted has loved it!

Benji has had an amazing year, and such a lovely start to school life. He is so excited to be going to big school and this is mostly due to the fun and love he has experienced with all the staff at St James

She has learnt numeracy and literacy skills and has a better ability to share and form friendships, and a growing understanding of the natural world through exposure to gardening, eggs hatching etc.

A star team! Thank you for looking after Aubrey so wonderfully over the last year! We are so grateful!

Tracey, you and St James have a special place in our hearts.

I just want to say a huge thank you, to you and your fantastic staff. You manage to create an environment that is both warm and nurturing, as well as being structured and productive enough to form a solid foundation for starting school.

My child has learnt to count and read , know her phonics. She has made lovely friendships and she has gained skills (gardening, ballet, singing, drama, nature, role-play etc)

My son has made progress in his social skills, physical ability, interest in learning and dealing with emotions. I am very happy with the progress he has made at the Pre-School

I will miss dropping the children off, safe in the knowledge they would be happy and cared for and that they would have a fantastic time.

On a personal level I have to say I feel you deserve to be outstanding. Particularly whilst comparing how amazing you and your staff are compared to other local establishments who do have the outstanding label. We love how you and the staff engage with the children, you get to know them properly and ensure they receive a very welcome reception every day.
