Selly Oak Nursery School

26 Tiverton Rd, Birmingham B29 6BP, UK – 0121 472 1700

Amazing nursery! Children were ahead of the curriculum when ready for reception. They care deeply for all families while going above and beyond to ensure every child has the best start to their education in a areas, maths, art, forest school, English all children leave with maths and writing skills

When I initially applied for my son to have a place at Selly Oak Nursery School, it was because it was an outstanding rated nursery and I wanted my precious 3-4 year old little boy to have the best start to his educational life as possible. What struck me as unique about the nursery was its clear emphasis on education for the future, whilst at the same time nurturing each child in the present as an individual who could be all that they choose to be. I was not looking for a nursery, I was looking for a lot more than that. I was looking for a nursery school, and as such wanted a place that was more than just a childcare provider and that offered my son the structure in education that he would need to prepare for the transition to Primary School. I had been continually impressed since his admission to the nursery with the staff, activities, learning opportunities and care given to my son. Before he began at the nursery he was a very different child; he was incredibly shy, barely talking much at all to anyone outside of his family group, and slightly delayed in his speech and communication. What I wanted for him was a place he could call his own, where he would learn for the future and be part of an inclusive community of children and teachers. This wonderful place provided him with that in the bucket load, and I will always be grateful for that. He is now a 5-year-old who has almost finished Reception at an outstanding primary school, who is confident both in terms of the rigours of phonics and mathematics, but also importantly with himself as an individual. The nursery gave him the chance to know what it is to be part of a school community, one where he was cared for in a genuinely positive and encouraging way, and gave him the chance to flourish. Selly Oak Nursery School turned my little boy from a child that was introverted, shy, and anxious, to a child that is supremely confident, infectiously curious, and incredibly keen to learn. The nursery embraced anything that interested my son, and opened his eyes to so many new interests ranging from minibeasts, 3D shape drawing, mud kitchens, bread making, role play, sitting down and reading stories, construction... I am so proud of him, but more importantly he is proud of himself, which is such a happy thing for me to see. My child would not have flourished half as much in a structured Primary School environment (where he is now meeting and exceeding expectations) if it were not for the approach Selly Oak Nursery School took with him and his learning – so much so that my youngest daughter will be attending the Nursery School in September. This place is more than just its outstanding OFSTED report; it is an outstanding community of teachers, parents and children, with a strong belief in the importance of education for all children. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.

Harborne Primary School

Station Rd, Birmingham B17 9LU, UK – 0121 464 2705

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 90 Year 5 pupils at Harborne Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The afternoon was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite and travelling through a future colonised Solar System. Thank you Harborne Primary for a very pleasant visit.

A high achieving school with profession staff.

Public & Preparatory Schools

King Edward's School

Edgbaston Park Road, Birmingham B15 2UA, UK – 0121 472 1672

I have two sons at the school and both have benefited from the academic focus the school provides and the opportunity to develop both intellectually and socially. For a provincial day school, its outlook is remarkably non-parochial. It fosters a tolerant and almost international outlook. It has yet to reach a needs blind admissions system but for a UK school gets close. The fact that it offers a generous assisted places scheme speaks volumes about its ethos and commitment to social mobility and inclusion. It is well known in the Midlands but deserves more national recognition. My boys are lucky and thankfully they realise it.

My son moved here from The Priory School, and we can honestly say we are the happiest we've been with the school, environment, and teachers. This school is much more selective (academically) than The Priory School, and so my son finds he is regularly challenged in classes to achieve highly, which he enjoys. A more intelligent surrounding, and would willingly allow him to board here, if it were a boarding school, that it.

Hallfield School

48 Church Rd, Birmingham B15 3SJ, UK – 0121 454 1496

Fantastic school - my child has been there since 18 months old all the way through to Grammar School at 11 years. I would say to other parents thinking of sending their children there, it's a fantastic opportunity for any child but put your trust in (a) your child and (b) the teachers and resist the temptation to interfere and get over-involved in any car park politics. The staff know what they're doing and it's their expertise that we pay for. In 10 years I have had no complaints at all. Thank you Hallfield School for everything. Sam (solicitor).

Fantastic school, my experience with the school and and staff has been amazing. My eldest son started in this school in 2001 he loved it very much staff were very supportive and education was great. So we decided to put our second son in 2003. They both got excellent results in 11+and went to the top grammar schools of their first choice. Two of my daughters are at Hallfield school now. I am very impressed with the school overall.
