Parent Testimonials

This page highlights testimonials by current parents who have sent their children to the school and the reasons why they believe it was the right/best decision.

 

When I visited The River School when deciding whether or not to move my daughter there, I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful grounds and extensive Forest School. The site just kept on giving.

The River School has helped turn my daughter from a quiet, shy child into a confident, sure of her faith, young lady.

 

We can honestly say that The River School is a wonderfully happy school which, in turn, reflects on the children. Our son, in only 6 weeks of being at The River School, has grown in confidence and his Maths is improving so much. Thank you, River School teachers and Mr Parsonage.

 

We are extremely pleased with our daughter’s progress at The River School and strongly believe that the school & its wonderful staff & community have helped her to be the person she is. The school accepts children as they are & builds and shapes a child’s character rather than fitting them into an ‘expected’ box. I have and will continue to recommend the excellent education that the school provides.

 

We are thrilled and relieved at how quickly our daughter has been growing in confidence since being at The River School. Her reading & writing in particular are so far ahead in such a short time. Thank you, all.

 

Our daughter has settled in very well and as parents we are quite happy.

 

I feel very confident that my daughter is well cared for at school. I feel confident that the teachers are working with her to ensure she works to the best of her ability in lessons and that, as a person, her character is cared about just as much and that she receives guidance and instruction in developing qualities that will stand her in good stead for her future.

 

The River School is and has been a hugely important influence on the character of our two sons and daughter. They are so well prepared to take a responsible role in the world around them, and to thoughtfully respond to questions about God, others and their future.

Our three sons have all loved The River School. They have felt safe, loved and each one has flourished. We love the Christian heart at the core of the school; Jesus can be seen in the teachers and found in all areas of the curriculum in subtle and sensitive ways.

 

As a family we feel very blessed that our daughter attends The River School. The teaching staff are amazing & the support, pastoral care & high quality teaching is evident time & time again. Outstanding school.

The River School is a nurturing environment for our child to grow educationally, emotionally & spiritually.

The teachers do an exceptional job of getting to my daughter and helping her to be the best person she can be.

 

Staff go over and above their remit to ensure that my child is safe, secure and confident in school. The emotional support is as positive & effective as the academic.
