Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School

339/341 City Rd, London EC1V 1LJ, UK – 020 7833 9388

Hopes and Dreams has been a blessing in our lives. Our daughter is now 30 months old and she has been in the nursery since she was about 14 months. Equally in all rooms she has received the best care. All practitioners and teachers, and specially her key persons has been so loving and dedicated, supporting her in her development with love, patience and understanding of her needs. They have been, not only teaching her about colors, numbers, letters, etc, but more importantly for us, they have been teaching her about values such as respect for herself and others, and are encouraging her to grow as a confident and independent little person, preparing her to seek and meet challenges in life. It is always hard to live our children with other people, and for us, as full time working parents, It give us a peace of mind to trust our little treasure to the hands of the hopes and Dreams team everyday. We are positive that our daughter is safe and loved and we enjoy following her day to day experiences though the daily reports, journey books and observations in My Montessori Child website. Thank you very much Hopes and Dreams!!!

My children attended this warm and inviting Nursery from when they were 5 months old. My son now 10 and daughter 5 experienced all the age groups. They have both turned out to be very socialable and academic individuals and I feel that credit goes to the long standing practitioners and professionals that my taught my children over those vital early years. The staff showed a clear commitment to the individual needs of my children with their loving and caring attitude and I believe this was the best start I could have given them. This Nursery was truly home from home.

Mars Montessori Bilingual Nursery

4 Collins Yard, off Islington Green, Angel, London N1 2XU, UK – 020 7099 0452

We moved from Canada to the UK and MARS was a huge help in transitioning my daughter to a new country. Friendly, kind staff who keep you up-to-date on your child's progress. We saw her flourish in French! I am so grateful for everyone at this school for everything they did during her attendance. Highly recommended.

Our son attending Mars for a year, after moving from another setting. Mars impressed us in so many ways, there is a fantastic caring atmosphere and also a child led focus on their development and giving even the littlest ones a wide ranging experience covering a range of topics. We are looking forward to our daughter also starting there in due course. Thank you to everyone at Mars.

Bright Horizons Mount Carmel Day Nursery and Preschool

18 Eden Grove, Off Holloway Road,, London N7 8EQ, UK – 020 3780 3015

my son went here for 8 months I recommend Kayley she really helped me settle my son in and looked after him well. They were very flexible and my son loved it. A very good nursery (and I looked at many and didn't like whether private or state) I didn't want him to leave a very good independent nursery.

Central Foundation Boys’ School

Cowper St, London EC2A 4SH, UK – 020 7253 3741

This school gives a public (private) education in a government setting. The best boys school in Islington if not north London. Teachers have high expectations of students in terms of work and behaviour.

I attended this school almost 50 years ago and today I am still grateful for the education I received. I realise things have changed radically over time but from its results, it is still achieving the goal the William Rodger set for the school, which was to offer education to all, irrespective of religion, colour or social background. As the School is about to celebrate its 150 anniversary, perhaps one should remember and rework John Kennedy's remark, Ask not what the School can do for me but what I can do for the School. Cowper Street allowed me, my younger brother to achieve a university education and supported both us use during our time there.

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

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.

Cavendish School

31 Inverness St, Camden Town, London NW1 7HB, UK – 020 7485 1958

A unique and exceptional school with a dedicated and experienced staff and wonderful, supportive, friendly families. The Cavendish is non selective and yet secures outstanding results for its girls within a framework of incredible pastoral care and without the pressure of 'hot house' schools. It places huge emphasis on kindness, tolerance and courtesy. Its families are dedicated to the school and are actively involved. Unusually, it has specialist teachers for science, music, languages, PE and art. Delicious, home made meals are cooked every day and an exciting array of extra curricular activities are available. The school itself is beautifully maintained and provides a happy, high quality learning environment. My best advice would be to come and see the school in action and judge for yourself. A little gem.

We have two daughters at the Cavendish, one in year 3 and one in year 6 (who has just left). Our experience of the school has been incredibly positive; both children always look forward to going to school and have never once expressed any reluctance during the last 8 years to leave the house in the morning. We chose the school because it was non selective and claimed to offer a strong a pastoral ethos with good academic results. Our experience is that it has delivered both in spades! What particularly impresses me about the school is the quality of the teaching and how they continually adapt it to the needs of the individual child. My two daughters are very different in how they learn and what their natural strengths are; I cannot praise the school enough for how they have personalised their approach to them and helped both of them to achieve their academic potential. We also wanted a school that had a strong science and maths curriculum and I have never failed to be impressed by the quality and sophistication of the maths and science they are doing. The homework policy feels well balanced and pitched just right for their age. My elder daughter, on leaving the school, has developed a good work ethic when it comes to homework which I feel has set her up perfectly for secondary school. The school is very friendly; we have built good relationships with parents not just from our daughters’ classes but from across other years groups as well. Unlike many other schools the meals are cooked and prepared in the school kitchen and are healthy, varied, and nutritious. Under the leadership of the previous head the school achieved and outstanding inspectors’ reports (excellent in all areas) which particularly commended the quality of the teaching and which we felt was well deserved. Under the new head the school has not rested on its laurels and has been striving to improve its academic performance still further; certainly the current year 6 have achieved an impressive range of offers from the top north London secondary schools. This is a lovely school, I could not think of a better place to send my daughters.

Nice school, great staff and kids are well look after.

Hanover Primary School

Noel Rd, Islington, London N1 8BD, UK – 020 7689 8949

A friendly and supportive school with a wonderfully welcoming community. The focus on reading at the school is truly outstanding with both of our children now avid, curious and rampant readers. The new head has a clear agenda of what he would like to improve one school and their seems to be an excellent learning culture throughout the teaching staff.

My daughter is nearing the end of her time at Hanover and it has been the happiest seven years. She has thoroughly embraced all aspects of school life and enjoyed every moment of her time there, making good friends and strong bonds with staff. Just watch the children banging on the doors to get in in the morning! Happy school.

Bodyology Massage School

Student Central, University of London Union, Malet St, 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.

Quantum Metta School of Massage

I absolutely loved studying with Quantum Metta! The courses were very thorough and the teachers are lovely. I have studied Holistic Massage, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Yoga Massage and Thai Foot Massage with them and I would recommend them to everyone!

I trained as both a holistic and sports massage therapist with Quantum Metta and had a fantastic experience. They are extremely professional and teach with a very high level of excellence. 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 English here on a scholarship almost ten years ago, it was definitely a life-changing experience. Got to meet people from all over, and even though I've forgotten the teachers names, their classes and passion for teaching have still got a very warm place in my heart. Happy I got to experience London with IH, hope to come back for a CELTA or DELTA one day, hopefully soon.

Eternamente agradecidos con Aladdin. Our experience at IH London has been amazing. We were a group of eight students and three teachers from Plottier, Argentina. We are most grateful for Aladdin´s 24/7 assistance to our group. Not only has he been there with us at the residence and school, but he also has shown us all the wonderful places London has to offer and....and even much more! When rating International House, Aladdin, our assigned IH Senior Staff member, takes all the credit! Thank you Aladdin for doing everything for us! We owe you everything for such a superb experience in London! You´ve made us enjoy every single minute of it! Thank you for your organization, responsibility, human values... and your loyal friendship! If there were problems, Aladdin was there to solve it. Than you Aladdin! We are deeply grateful for your tremendous job at IH! Eternamente agradecidos!

Bloomsbury International English Language School

6-7 Southampton Pl, London WC1A 2DB, UK – 020 7242 2234

The school’s and accomodation‘s location is good. Unfortunately the staff was not as caring as I expected, it is ridiculous how the school gets along with complaining. However, the school was a good point for meeting new people and also most of the teachers were funny and friendly. Sadly I had the feeling that they care more about the money they make then about their students to be satisfied.

My 10 years daughter Laura has attended a 3weeks English course in Bloomsbury International, and I wish to thank all people who assisted and supported her during her presence in the school. It was an amazing experience for her, she met very nice schoolmates and her teacher Maria was smart, funny and very professional at the same time. Laura felt that she was working hard every day, but also having much fun! we think this is very important especially for young learners. At the end she didn't want to go back home :-) We recommend the school to everybody!
