Helena Rowley, a local Marlow parent tells Marlow Mum’s about hers and her son’s experience at Danesfield school. Her son moved to Danesfield School into Year 3 this last September.
Picking the right school can be tricky. We feel really happy that my son joined Danesfield school in Marlow in September 2018. Not only is it an outstanding school on paper -Ofsted 2017, but my son’s experience is also outstanding. The teachers are lively, happy, personable and enthusiastic. All are very keen for each child to do his or her best and they work hard to achieve this in many different ways. Kids are excited to go to this school and feel a real connection to it, proud.
The school grounds are amazing. Surrounded by woods, the kids get to do forest school which is incredible fun and educational.
The head of school has a pro active yet youthful approach to learning and this radiates throughout the school.
There is a Den/childcare onsite for before and after school care with lots of fun things to do. Very handy for busy families.
You are always kept in the loop with what’s going on at school whether it be via the friendly reception/front of school staff or through the lovely class reps. The activities on offer and teachers in the school clubs are very professional and there is a huge variety to choose from, both educational and fun. My son has thrived 10 fold in just a few short months at this school.
I would say they have just got it right all round.
