The Gower School - Montessori Nursery

18 North Road, London N7 9EY, UK – 020 7700 2445

Our child was at the nursery for about 18 months and we were so sad he couldn't attend further due to us moving away. He absolutely adored his teachers, who were kind, caring and couldn't do enough for him and us and it was wonderful seeing our child's confidence grow. We always felt welcomed, listened to and confident leaving our child in their care. We miss them all!

I highly recommend the TGS nursery to any parents/carers. A truly caring and nurturing environment, helping children explore so many different learning areas and build up their confidence. We particularly appreciated the constant open dialogue with the teachers.

North Bridge House Preparatory School

1 Gloucester Ave, Camden Town, London NW1 7AB, UK – 020 7267 6266

Over the years have been some hiccups, but the school always strives to resolve and improve if issues are raised by very involved, proactive and friendly parents community.

Great school I joined in year 1-6

Secondary Schools

Oaklands Secondary School

Old Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 6PR, UK – 020 7613 1014

One of the first and only choice we made for our child, who'll be attending the school from next September, Reason we took the decision, we have other family members who'd attended the school and also some are currently studying there. They all are seem to be doing very well with their education, and from their results and recommendation we decided to pay a visit 2 weeks ago. I was extremely pleased to see two of my former teachers Mr. Bonning and Mr. Purton still teaching within the school and I'm talking its over 20 years I've left school. These two teachers are great individuals always want the best for their students and provide real quality teaching. The headmistress she is the foundation of the school and also with experience and great results. Listening to her speech during the open evening she just convinced me and my wife along with my child. Thank you Oaklands

Regent High School

Chalton St, Kings Cross, London NW1 1RX, UK – 020 7387 0126

Please don't read this ,worst school in the world no joke

City of London School

107 Queen Victoria St, London EC4V 3AL, UK – 020 3680 6300

My son went to CLS from 13 years old to 18. It changed his life. This school is the best I have come across. It was outstanding both academically and in terms of personal development.

Friend of mine was a pupil there, loved it and keeps in touch with his old school buddies. The building on Queen Victoria Street is no longer occupied by the school but by an investment bank and it is a Grade II listed building. What fine architectural style built like a grand French Chateau designed by Davis and Emanuel in the Victoria Era. Of great interest are the statues carved high up on the walls from left to right. Bacon Shakespeare Milton Newton. If you look closely the details of carving is incredibly detailed. A real 'stand-out' building facing the River Thames

Independent Schools

Charterhouse Square School & Nursery

40 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6EA, UK – 020 7600 3805

Charterhouse Square School is founded by original headmistress Jamie Mason with school fees set at £425 per term! Over the course of the next two decades we go on to gain a reputation for all-round academic performance. In March the school becomes part of Cognita – a worldwide group of schools founded by Sir Chris Woodhead, former head of Ofsted. In December Caroline Lloyd takes over as headmistress fifteen years after first joining the school. When space becomes available in an adjacent building, the school expands to occupy a total of seven floors in our much-coveted Barbican location. This allows the school to add a dedicated Early Years area, a school library and an art room. n further work to improve the school site, the entire basement and ground floor of number 40 is completely remodelled. The addition of bi-folding glass doors to link our Green Room to its outdoor sand and water area is a particular hit with the children. Charterhouse Square School celebrates its 30-year anniversary with a surprise party for the children and a ball for parents, teachers and friends of the school. The school is also featured in The Good Schools Guide for the first time.

My daughter is nearing the end of her time at Hanover and it has been the happiest seven years.

Just watch the children banging on the doors to get in in the morning! Happy school.

My child had a great start to education at this school. Loved the teachers and the people. My child has such great attitude to learning, thanks to the nurturing atmosphere experienced in early years.

Bodyology Massage School

Student Central Building, University of London, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HY, UK – 020 7100 7903

I discovered Bodyology School of Massage thanks to one of my friend who trained by Bodyology as well. It was such a nice discovery while I was thinking to become massage therapist and looking for a good, reliable school here in London where invest my money and time to get a professional certification. It was a lovely journey with Dror, Simon and Sally, wonderful and passionate teachers. A memorable experience with all my classmates as well as colleagues! Bodyology is an excellent way to introduce yourself in Holistic Massage, learning many different massage techniques. Studying anatomy, physiology, pathology and practicing a lot, makes the difference in starting your career as massage therapist. Thanks Bodyology

As a massage therapist , I've been awarded top rated salon 2017. As so many clients rated my massage treatments with 5 stars. I would like to say Thank You!! To The Bodyology Massage School, for providing a high standard of training. The theory classes were interactive, this helped me to retain information for longer. In the practical classes, we learnt how to tailor massage treatments to each clients individual needs. My clients always comment on how much they benefited from my massage treatments. As a graduate I continue to learn from Bodyology, though the virtual campus content and having access to the videos from my practical and theory classes.

Doreen and Dympna are kind and encouraging. The training is very informative and they make learning enjoyable. I would encourage anyone interested in massage therapy to attend the school. I can not speak highly enough of them both . Thank you Sharon

I studied a number of courses with Quantum Metta and enjoyed them all. All the teachers are really knowledgeable and able to turn the classroom into a very friendly and supportive learning environment. The classes are very practical oriented, I learnt great skills and gained bags of confidence. I would surely recommend.

Private Tutors

Tutor House

2 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3PX, UK – 020 3950 0320

Tutor House not only provided for our daughter a way forward at a difficult time, but a transformational experience. Over two years two fine tutors home-schooled our daughter in English Literature and Politics, which enabled her to complete her qualifications and for which she received an A* in both subjects. This was not an easy assignment. Our daughter suffers from a rare and complicated medical condition which had led to her being removed from school entirely. During this period she was frequently ill and her otherwise productive sessions were interrupted as a consequence. Throughout both tutors continued to set a very high standard of academic achievement, and she persisted, trying to meet it as best she could. In January, we received the happy news that she has been offered a place at Cambridge University, which she has accepted. What seemed to us at the start a very daunting mountain to climb has resulted, through her work with Tutor House, in a place at the mountaintop. I can't assess this wonderful turn of events without acknowledging that profound contribution which has had the power to change the course of a single life so dramatically, and for which we, as parents, are naturally so grateful.

Tutor house helped me with my resits in PE and Psychology helping me go from 3Bs at A level to A*AB. Both Alex and Inez were great with helping me with exam technique and confidence leading up to the exam. They also advised with personal statement writing for UCAS and university, giving me helpful tips and advice which contributed to me getting an unconditional offer to study at the University of Birmingham. I would really recommend tutor house, their tutors are knowledgeable and motivated to help you get your best grade.

The Profs

I am a professional tutor and have been around the London tutor scene for 11 years. No company even comes close to what The Profs do and I only work exclusively for them now.

Great agency and service for BOTH tutors and tutees (!) - excellent quality, speed, ease of communication and support! Highly highly recommended!

Tavistock Tutors
