INSIDE SCOOP All Hallows Preparatory School Cranmore Hall, East Cranmore, Somerset, BA4 4SF Admissions: 01749 881609 • SW Day/Flexi/Weekly/Full 3-13 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… All Hallows has become an extension of our family. We were looking for a school that would give our children a supportive learning environment and we have found so much more at All Hallows. Each of my children have been able to grow as individuals, explore and develop their own interests and hobbies in an enthusiastic, supportive environment. In all areas of their learning,my children have had dynamic, dedicated staff, encouraging them to explore, experiment and succeed. My children have developed confidence, independence, resilience and a hunger to learn. They have made life-long friendships and magical memories. It is clear to see that the school is full of happy children and staff. Open days: 6 May 2019. Autumn Term dates to be confirmed. As parents, we love: The breadth of learning and extra curricular activities available to all the children. The inspirational teachers that develop a love of learning in all the children. The children have so much fun - in the classroom, on the sports field, on the stage, in the playground. Our children love: All the sporting activities. The good friends they have made. The breadth of learning opportunities. HEADS UP “Every child has an inherent value, which is exceptional and exclusive to them. Our aim is to provide a secure, happy and inclusive community, where they will develop the inner confidence and self-esteem necessary to flourish in our rapidly changing world. ” Dr Trevor Richards, Headmaster 6 Read the full review on ★ 2019

INSIDE SCOOP Aysgarth School Newton-le-Willows, Bedale, North Yorks, DL8 1TF Admissions: 01677 451 021 • Day/Flexi/Weekly/Full 3-13 M|N As parents, we love: The confidence and self-assurance it has given our son, without being arrogant. The boys are stretched academically by dedicated, passionate and caring teachers. We love the fact that a 1st team sports jumper is as coveted as the senior choir gown. The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We love that Aysgarth is an all boy environment where the boys have the freedom to be boys. The school offers a real sense of adventure, where the boys are encouraged to behave like children and be active in a good old-fashioned way. Aysgarth is set in beautiful grounds and has a sense of ‘place’. When you walk down the corridors the boys are like a boisterous, bounding pack of puppies - full of noise, excitement, life and energy. This encourages the boys to be hardy too, where they spend huge amounts of time outside playing sports and games in all weather conditions. The boys go onto a wide variety of schools including Eton and Harrow in the South to Merchiston Castle and Gordonstoun in the North, all as happy, confident all-rounders. Our children love: Fun and laughter with their peers in a strong boarding community - “a constant sleepover!” The broad range of activities from mountain biking to scuba diving and clay pigeon shooting. Opportunities, from the choir tour in France to the rugby tour in Oxford. HEADS UP “Aysgarth provides the opportunity for children to make the most of their potential and genuinely prepares them for public school and later life. We believe that happy boys learn more quickly and are much more likely to support each other and contribute to society.” Rob Morse, Headmaster Open days: Prep School - Individual Tours by arrangement / Pre-Prep Open Mornings May & November 2019. 2019 ★ Read the full review on 7
