Reviewer Connection to Clifton Lodge School

  • Mother of Child

Our son started in lower reception as he reached his 4th birthday. Over the year, we saw his confidence and social interaction soar alongside his basic reading, writing and counting. He genuinely loved every day at "BIG SCHOOL". We loved the small class size (12 max) which meant he always got the support, encouragement and attention he needed. It was the perfect start to his educational needs.

Dear Mrs King
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Clifton Lodge School. We are delighted that your son is progressing so well and had such a great start in our Nursery.
Kind regards
Clifton Lodge School

The care and attention the children receive is excellent. They have enough staff to look after the children. They learn music, french and IT. Being introduced to different teachers at a young age is a wonderful experience to have. My son has many allergies which are all catered or and the food looks wonderful. Very patient and friendly staff. We are very happy with the nursery.
