What our Parents say
"We moved our daughter mid-way through Year One from a state primary and from the first week have never looked back. The support both we as parents and our daughter were given to help settle in was fantastic and the individual attention and feedback on a daily basis was so reassuring. We have since learned this wasn't just because we were 'new joiners' - but the treatment that all children and parents get from a dedicated and hard working teaching team. Dropping off at school every day is a real pleasure - staff, pupils and other parents go out of their way to be friendly and polite! The enthusiasm our daughter comes home with for what she has learnt at school is so uplifting compared to the previous 'I can't remember' - on her second day she came out talking about Neil Armstrong, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Henry VIII - we were bowled over! The school genuinely means what it says about setting challenging and motivating learning targets for each individual child and there is no 'red tape' about progressing beyond set attainment levels. Our only regret is that we didn't take action and move her earlier."
"Mr Barrett and the team at Heywood Prep have made our son's change of school seamless; for us as a family it has been a great experience. Mr Barrett understands our parental worries before, during and after sending our son to the school. The team have delivered at every point when we have asked for help and advice regarding our son. All the teachers and staff, whether it's the groundsman, the school chefs or the office team, my son can approach and be listened to by all. The opportunnities Heywood Prep has already given our son are ensuring good foundations are laid for his future. It is a school with fantastic vision. I believe the team will make Heywood Prep a school that will constantly shine and have an outstanding reputation."
"We moved our eldest daughter into Year 4 and our only regret is that we didn't move sooner. This is a warm and welcoming school and our children immediately felt part of it. Standards are high for every aspect of school life and we are confident about our children's education"
"Heywood Prep is family orientated - the children all know each other throughout the school, not just within their year group. I was really impressed with the Head Girl at the Open Morning. She was so helpful, mature and able to offer her view on the school"
"Heywood Prep was highly recommended to us by other parents and also by a teacher who also visited the school on our behalf. A family visit to school on Open day convinced us this was right choice for our two children. Fun, caring, inclusive and professional!"
