I was very impressed with the phonics lesson I saw with all the children engaging really well.  The children were very smartly dressed and the School has the added benefit of a Children’s Centre attached.”                               Andrew Selous – Member of Parliament for SW Bedfordshire.

testimonialsWhat do you like about St George’s?

  • Great support for children who need it.
  • The atmosphere, how involved and open the teachers are. There is a positivity and excitement that exudes from all, which transfers over to the children. I also love the fact that the class sizes are smaller, providing more focused time for each child.
  • Friendly environment and the teachers are always there to resolve any problems or concerns you have about your children.
  • My child loves the school and they have nice facilities. 
  • My child enjoys coming to school, the teachers we have met seem really enthusiastic and motivated, as well as innovative.

  • Mrs Grant, the reception classroom, the teaching and the support staff.
  • Small school with a happy atmosphere.
  • It’s a nice, small school which we found better, more time is spent with each child. I’m really happy my daughter got into the school, she has made a lot of progress already.
  • That all the children seem happy, my daughter enjoys Mondays and coming back to school after the weekend. The teachers are very informative, letting you know what your child does throughout the day.
  • Very happy environment, staff are fantastic, great school meals, good progress and targets. Very welcoming and class pets.
  • Staff are easy to talk to about any problem I have.
  • I like that St George’s uses a ‘small school’ attitude when teaching classes, ensuring that everyone gets the attention they need. I also like the fact that staff listen when I need to speak with them.
  • The school has made great progress since my child first started. Mrs Ward has my upmost praise, she makes everyday a joy at school and puts in 100%.
  • The ‘family’ feel, every child is valued for who they are, including their individual needs. All staff know ALL of the children well.
  • New children are made to feel welcome, thank you.
  • Classes are not over crowded
  • A warm, welcoming atmosphere as you enter the school on reception, very happy, helpful and kind staff on the front desk. I like the dojo app, I find it very useful and good at keeping track of my daughters progress and what they get up to in class, enjoy looking at the pictures of my daughter in lessons. Her teacher is wonderful too, always gives me lots of information about everything, very kind and friendly. Excellent staff, nice big school and lots of good facilities.

Year 4 Reflections

  • This year I have enjoyed learning French, I really liked acting out the Christmas nativity in French. I love going swimming every week. At Christmas I was a member of the choir, we sang carols at the supermarkets and in the care homes. I liked the way the older people sang and clapped with us, it made me feel good. Tyrelle
  • I liked our topic solids, liquids and gases; we had a lot of fun. The experiments were exciting. We melted chocolate, blew up a coke bottle and explored reversible and irreversible materials. I liked being able to experiment and explore different alongside my friends. It was amazing. Kayla
  • I really enjoyed the percussion sessions; we learned to play the drums and to play a tune with other instruments. Chloe
  • I am really excited about this year because we do lots and lots of interesting activities to make our learning fun. We made volcanoes by adding a solid to a liquid to make a gas. We have melted chocolate and tried to insulate ice pops. I am looking forward to the chocolate project. Lexie
  • I enjoyed the Anglo Saxon topic, we did a re- enactment of an invasion. I loved it because our parents came to watch us. It was really fun. I also love going swimming. Ellie
