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.

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

Darul Hadis Latifiah Secondary School & College

1 Cornwall Ave, London E2 0HW, UK – 020 8983 3663

Saw some students from this school on the underground going on a trip recently. They were all sensibly reading - it was fantastic to see. Makes a big change from students shouting or playing on their mobile phones. Spoke to the teacher and he said that they emphasise reading and aim to foster a love of reading. Really impressive stuff.

I went to Darul Hadis to deliver a workshop on PSHCE. I must say that I found the boys to be brilliant. Their behaviour was excellent and their contributions to sensitive topics were thoughtful and mature. I look forward to working with the school in the future.

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.

City of London School for Girls

City of London School for Girls, St Giles Terrace, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BB, UK – 020 7847 5500

City of London School for Girls (CLSG) is a independent school located in the City of London. It is the partner school of the all-boys City of London School and the City of London Freemen's School All three schools receive funding from the City's Cash.[1] History The school was founded using a bequest by William Ward, a merchant of Brixton, in 1894.[2] It was his conviction that girls should be given a broad and liberal education with an emphasis on scholarship; he left a third of his fortune to the City of London to fund the foundation of a girls' school, a £20,000 legacy for the City of London Corporation. The school now receives financial support from the City Livery Companies as well as banks and other City firms. Links with the City of London remain strong – the City administers the school and the Board of Governors is appointed by the Court of Common Council. The school has strong links with its brother school – the City of London School is just a 15-minute walk away. The school celebrated its 110th Anniversary in 2004–2005, under the title of 'Women in Leadership'. It celebrated its 111th Anniversary in 2005–2006, under the same title. It celebrated its 112th Anniversary in 2006–2007 under the title of 'International Women in Leadership'.

My daughter currently attends but has been very unwell with a long term condition. The way the staff have consistently "gone the extra mile" for her and us shows a level of care that is exceptional. As a parent that is the most important thing and I would happily recommend the school to anyone considering sending their daughter there.

Primary Schools

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.

Language Schools

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!

It's an awesome place to not only improve English ability but also soak in a friendly learning environment. All students come from different countries make this place diverse. Just stay open-minded and you will definitely get best support! Moreover, EF holds city tours sometime. Never hesitate to register the trips because you will get cheaper prices than going by yourself, and having fun with teachers and classmates give you opportunities to learn and use English in daily life.

I very much enjoy my Spanish lessons with Antonio who has managed to take me from zero to being able to hold a steady conversation in one year.

Excel Tutors

I came to Excel tutors for English Lessons. I found the teachers very helpful and the best of the best. The management are excellent here. The lessons were really good and productive which helped me to understand what I went wrong in my previous exam. Lucky I was able to do my exam in their building as well so I was already comfortable on my exam day. And with the help of excel tutors I managed to pass my GCSE English and today I am collecting my certificate.

I have been a tutor at Excel tutors for the last 5 years and I have nothing but positive comments. The dedication that comes from the genuine care the management and tutors have for the academic success of the student is second to none. Excel tutors have been operating for nearly 10 year's and they have a very positive future ahead.
