My son loves going to Carrdus every day, his teacher makes him feel valued and he is so happy. He is full of stories about his day when he comes home. He loves playing football with the other children and the size of the school and inclusive nature means he plays with and has made friends across a range of year groups.

We have never heard our daughter complain once about “being at school”. She loves her work, teachers and friends in equal measure, feeling completely at ease with the school. It is a combination of the breadth of activities that she gets to undertake, the environment and the testing nature of all the things she gets to do, whether that be the annual music competition, the school plays, the swimming galas, the weekly Big Writes or the other activities that challenge her on a weekly basis  – she simply enjoys learning at the school.

The school has an exemplary approach to making learning fun and engaging. I believe the wonderful mix of outdoor and indoor learning opportunities, as well as a focus on practical learning, gives the children every opportunity to be able to engage with the topics and the process of learning. There aren’t many schools where a child in Reception can learn karate, ballet, cooking, swimming and circus skills all in one year!

We wanted a school that would be caring and supportive of our son whilst being strong academically. We looked at a number of other schools locally but felt Carrdus was the right choice. We were very impressed by the Carrdus Pathway and the impact it clearly had on children we spoke to when we looked around for the first time.

Carrdus has fully met all the needs of our daughter. Having seen other schools while we were making our decision, we could not be happier that we made the choice that we did. In Carrdus we found a school that has a strong, broad-based educational offer delivered with empathy and professionalism and a real focus on academic rigour, delivered in a fun and inspiring way.
