"My children are now both at high school, where they have taken with them good academic achievement and positive learning behaviour, thanks to their years at Willow Tree."
My two children were both pupils at Willow Tree right from Nursery through to Year 6 (2010-2017 and 2013-2020). I have no hesitation in recommending the school to new families.
My children are now aged 14 and 12, and are both happy, confident learners. They were well supported at Willow Tree by some amazing teachers and had a very wide circle of friends from all around the local community. They enjoyed many extra-curricular activities and clubs, opportunities to represent the school, a wide range of guests and visitors, interesting school trips, and both were able to access music lessons (keyboard and cello).
I always felt that my children were happy and safe at school and that their learning needs were being met. All members of teaching staff and office staff were always approachable and accessible; always ready to listen and to help with any queries or issues. I have nothing but praise for the Headteacher, Dr Helen Davey, and feel very fortunate that we had the benefit of her leadership throughout our ten years at the school.
As a parent, I was always encouraged to be involved in school life, and did so my volunteering time to help in the classrooms or on school trips, and by taking part in shared learning activities. I also enjoyed being involved in the school PTA, helping to put on fun activities to raise extra funds.
My children are now both at high school, where they have taken with them good academic achievement and positive learning behaviour, thanks to their years at Willow Tree. I know that they will always look back fondly on their time.
