What the parents say...

Our son has been at Park Hill since he was two and is thriving at this lovely little prep-school. Mr Bond is a wonderful headmaster with big plans for the place, and the fact his wife teaches there (and his daughter also attends), makes this small school with big plans feel all the more family-run. The school never fails to seize upon an opportunity to make use of nearby Richmond Park, which is one of the unique selling points of this school. A love of the outdoors, interest in sport and the importance of perseverance are instilled alongside the progress in the more academic subjects. Plenty of opportunities in more creative pursuits too with music lessons and theatre trips with performing arts in the weekly assemblies (which parents can attend the school has close ties with the church opposite). There are lots of opportunities here and the structured approach to learning provides a very different and refreshing approach pre-4eception (which our son loves). The children are kind, well behaved and with beautiful manners. The class sizes from Reception onwards are small and represent unparalleled teacher to pupil ratios in the area, which allows for the children to excel here. A little almost hidden gem.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
