What says..

Picturesque brickwork casts early morning shadows on a sea of green, pitches everywhere, side order of bluebell-carpeted woodland (provides fuel for new biomass boiler as well as home for achingly on-trend forest classroom), all 175 acres well-used by mothers who ‘turn up in their lycra and go running with their labradors,’ says former parent who also bemoaned the fact that ‘it’s easy to start feeling a bit smug.’ Everywhere is extremely neat with not an inch wasted and loads to see and do, including rocket in reception class, less final frontier than cosy den, though strange lifeforms, courtesy of tank o’tadpoles, had already been discovered...
