Alice Model Nursery School

14 Beaumont Grove, London E1 4NQ, UK – 020 7790 5425

Alice Model is an absolutely fantastic nursery. Amazing, dedicated and caring staff. School resources are extremely diversified: The nursery is outfitted with child-sized tables and chairs arranged in small and varied clusters, with classroom materials on child-height shelves throughout the room. Activities are initially presented by the teacher, after which they may be chosen more or less freely by the children as interest dictates. Classroom materials include activities for engaging in practical skills such as pouring and spooning, materials for the development of the senses, math materials, language materials, music and art materials, and more. This is completely in line with the Montessori concept and has an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child's natural psychological, physical, and social development. All that in a multicultural and environment which is a really great for the children social development. This outstanding nursery is state funded, but offers much more than any private nursery, even Montessori ones.

Alice model is an amazing school. Both my daughters attended Alice Model and a great time at the nursery. All the staff are both professional and caring. My eldest daughter had a difficult time initially settling into nursery life. Staff were very patient with her and dealt with any difficult behaviour very well. I was so happy with the nursery I deferred my daughters entry into reception. I was worried that she might need to catch up when she got to primary but staff at Alice Model ensured my daughter was at the level required for Reception. She is now doing well and starting year one. I feel there is a number of reasons why the nursery is so successful. It is quite small so children and parents can be treated as individuals. The head or deputy head are usually at the door in the morning and afternoon if you have any concerns. The ratio of child to staff is good as is the knowledge and expertise staff have. The nursery focuses on learning through play so the children don't think about it as "learning". There is also a lot of practical activities that the nursery does that make the learning experience more real. The way the nursery is structured works well. The children are divided into small groups with a key worker. I think this structure works well as both childcare professionals and teachers are given the responsibility to look after their key children. It also helps the staff develop relationships with parents. I would really recommend this nursery.

Morpeth Secondary School

Portman Pl, London E2 0PX, UK – 020 8981 0921

I love this school it is the best and the teachers are all so nice to me. My favourite is PE because the teachers are very HOT. (OMG they r so buff). Anyways guys you should all go to Morpeth as it is the best school. It is better than all other schools although the teachers are very sexist (apart form the PE teachers). (I AM A TEACHER BEING FORCED TO SAY THIS BY JEMIMA REILY THE HEADTEACHER)

I was her from 2009 to 2014 all teachers were kind even grumpy old mr white but best was support a lady named Samantha Hennesy was soon hot

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

I am not rating the school, but i am rating the Arabic class that takes place on Saturdays and Sundays. I moved my child to Tanzeel white chapel, and they treated my child ridiculously bad, so i moved my child to Olive Tree. The Arabic that takes place in 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.

Rosemary Works School

1 Branch Pl, London N1 5PH, UK – 020 7739 3950

My son has been at Rosemary Works School since nursery and is extremely happy there. It is a small school with a very nurturing and creative environment. The teachers are excellent and my son is developing a real love for learning. I couldn't recommend it enough!

Both of our sons absolutely love going to school every morning. In the school's informal, friendly and flexible environment children do very well academically out of real interest and self confidence rather then simply a sense of discipline and obligation. Children are encouraged to think independently and creatively, and to voice their ideas, thoughts and opinions which will be heard and actually considered in matters ranging from lunch menu to learning subjects. Simply a great school.

No1 Fitness Education

50 St Mary Axe, London EC3A 8FR, UK – 020 7621 1312

What a Fantastic experience! I started my course back in September and its the best decision I made. The guys are really professional and pro active helping you every step of the way, that doesn't end once your qualified. No1 Fitness Education provide you not only with the skills and tools you need to become a PT but they also support and advice you once your qualified. I enjoyed my experience so much that I have gone back to No1 Fitness to train with their experienced team so I can further develop myself as a PT and see first hand what high quality looks like. Check them out their AMAZING!

The Poetry School

81 Lambeth Walk, Lambeth, London SE11 6DX, UK – 020 7582 1679

You don't have to be an inexperienced poet or completely new to poetry to benefit from all that the Poetry School has to offer. During the last year I've taken workshops on Visual art, joined an online group reading Auden's The Sea and the Mirror, taken part in a collaborative performance of poems inspired by the Battle of the Somme film and received a detailed evaluation of a collection of poems. I thoroughly recommend the Poetry School if you want to develop as a poet.

I've taken part in both free and paid for courses via The Poetry School, and while it's definitely worth paying for them - you get to meet folk face to face for a start - the quality of teaching is no lesser for being free. This lot care, they choose amazing teachers and if they can get me published then they can get anyone published. What are you waiting for....sign up now.

Antonio is a great teacher and tailor the classes to your objectives. I found our private lessons very helpful and well structured. Thank you Antonio for your great help.

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. I have found the mix of structured lessons and conversation to be very beneficial to my learning and I would highly recommend a one-to-one class with Lingua Clinic. I have found my lessons to be good value for money, extremely fulfilling and very enjoyable.
