Please see below a selection of testimonials from both former and current parents:
I am writing to thank Mrs Davies for the continual encouragement she has given my child in Year 4 this year. Mr child has made significant progress in comparison to Y3 having received much needed positive praise and continual encouragement throughout the year. He has gone from a child who had no real interest in writing to child who comes home and continually talks about his stories, the different ways in which he has been taught and is keen to share his reading with his teacher. He now displays real enthusiasm and this is no doubt a real attribute to Mrs Davies’s teaching skills. In his own words “English is nearly as good as PE” which undoubtedly in his eyes is an immense accolade.
I have no doubt that at this precious age primary teachers have a significant impact on a child’s confidence and self belief and once again the input from Mrs Davies has been ‘magical’ for my son. Current Parent
We would like to thank you all for the part that you have played in our sons education and welfare over the last four years. He has been very happy and learned so much whilst at Staines Prep and we, as a family, have thoroughly enjoyed our association with the School and will cherish the many memories that we have in the years to come. Former Parent
My son has made outstanding progress in the 2 years he has attended the Sunflowers Nursery. He has enjoyed every moment of it and established positive relationships with his peers and staff. As a fellow teacher, I have taken a keen interest in the nursery curriculum and believe this to be a real strength of the school. My son has been provided with endless learning opportunities and talks with great enthusiasm at home about his experiences. I would be very happy to recommend the Nursery and indeed the School to my friends and colleagues. Former Parent
May I say that it was a wise decision on our part to choose Staines Preparatory School first for my son and later for my daughter. Both children have received firm educational foundations and have developed excellent social skills which are so important in the World we inhabit.
Many thanks for your guidance, help and cooperation over the years. Former Parent
I was just writing to say how happy and confident we feel that our boys are going to part of your lovely school. Honestly speaking as parents we have been to see a few other schools over the last few weeks ... and none other was as happy and inspiring at Staines Prep. Even my son said “Mum everyone seemed very happy in Staines”. I think it says a lot when a six year old makes this comment.
Coincidentally, I wanted to share some feedback on my son’s interview at Halliford School. I was most impressed with his self-confidence, focus and mature attitude not just during the interview but even en-route, calming ME down when I had lost my way!
Never once throughout have they ever not wanted to go to school or to attend the many and varied activities during the day or after school hours. We feel that this is a considerable achievement on your part. Staines Prep has indeed given them a very happy, confident start to their educational life from which we are sure that they will benefit.
