What the parents say...

My son is currently in year 1 and we both love it. It feels like being part of a big family. The class size is good - 13 - so all the children get real focused attention. The standard of teaching is high but without pressure. The children are happy children - you feel it as soon as you walk in the doors. For his primary years it feels perfect.

This is a very special school with a special atmosphere. I was so lucky to find it for my 7 year old who was struggling in the state system. Since joining, he has become more confident and happy and academically had progressed wonderfully. Lloyd Williamson is like a village school in the heart of London with a warm and inclusive ethos.

Lloyd Williamson is a gem of a school. They foster confidence, individuality, ambition and academic excellence in children from the nursery to Reception and upwards in a very nurturing environment. The teachers are great and have varied professional backgrounds which add to the cultural enrichment that the school provides, all with a firm rooting in high academic standards that encourage each child to reach their potential. They are a great demonstration of what can be achieved with children without hothousing them. One of the things we really appreciate about the school is the opportunity for parents to get involved. Whether it be face to face time with teaching staff as and when needed or access to the head teacher, their open and personalised approach is wonderfully refreshing and makes the education of our children a wholly collaborative process. A really special school.

Our son is currently in Year 1 and he is thriving. We were drawn to the school by the very high levels of pastoral care and the individual approach to each child which exists alongside very good academic standards. Despite the latter, the emphasis is on learning for the pleasure of learning & not on pressure & unnecessary testing. The children study a wide range of subjects (in year 1 they do both French & Spanish), they visit a local adventure playground at lunchtime, older children are encouraged to take care of the younger ones - overall it is a place where children do very well academically & reach their own individual potential - all within a caring, community atmosphere.

Lloyd Williamson is an outstanding school. I have two children in the upper years and they love it. Academic standards are high but the atmosphere is nurturing rather than pressurised. The pastoral care and individual attention for each pupil is first-rate because of the small class sizes and commitment of the teaching and support staff. Communication between the school and parents is brilliant and the curriculum is taught with real creativity which ensures the children are engaged, enthusiastic and able to fulfil their potential. I've also been really impressed with the school's role within the community: regular foodbank collections, charitable fundraisers and school trips mean the children have a genuine sense of involvement and understanding of broader social issues. Can't recommend it highly enough.

An extremely caring school, where children, teachers and parents are all on first name terms. A very small and inclusive environment allowing children from all backgrounds to thrive. Previously only known by personal recommendation, this school is set to become one of Notting Hill's more unusual and treasured institutions.

Lloyd Williamson is one of the best kept secrets in Notting Hill. Small class sizes, caring teaching and administrative staff, high academic standards but without the obsession with testing which we have witnessed in other schools in the area and a broad curriculum with a focus on education in the widest sense including subjects like Latin and grammar, real attention to individual children and their needs and finally a wonderfully mixed parent body, most of whom live in the immediate area of the school. Highly recommended.

As a parent with three children currently at the school and nursery I would like to share how very pleased and delighted we are with the care, nurturing and education of our children - primarily I attribute this to the small class sizes (10 in reception) which allows the teachers to give proper individual attention to the pupils. It is a constant surprise to me that the school is not better known in the area - but presumably this is because it is small and as parents, we like to keep it that way!
