Into-Play At The Quays

24 Llanthony Rd, Gloucester GL2 5HQ, UK – 01452 413131

Perfect little nursery for my son. No problems. All the staff are lovely

My boy/girl twins have attended Into-Play nursery since they were 2 years old. They have now been there for almost 18 months and I have never looked back. I had the option of using my sister to look after them who is also a childminder but I wanted her to remain their 'Auntie' so chose to look for a playgroup independently. Into-Play came highly recommended to me via lots of friends and I am thrilled that we found them. All of the staff who work there are highly professional and genuinely care about every single child that attends. When dropping the twins off I can walk away with complete confidence that they have been left in capable hands and honestly cannot recommend them more highly. I feel very lucky that they have had such a great start to their little social life/schooling and cannot thank Into-Play enough : ) xxx

Independent Schools

The King's School

Pitt St, Gloucester GL1 2BG, UK – 01452 337337

I can highly recommend The Kings School Gloucester. I have 2 daughters in the junior school who are both very happy there. They are extremely well taught and cared for by dedicated and inspiring staff. This includes the form teachers, teaching assistants and the specialist staff for subjects such as music, dance and sport. The school has a lovely family feel and we feel very lucky to be a part of it.

I have two children that both joined the school in year 4 in the junior school and have been at the school for 8 years. I can not say enough how wonderful the school has been in educating my children both academically and socially, preparing them in every way possible for their future lives. The class sizes are small with excellent teachers both in the classroom and on the sports field. The school also has a highly effective pastoral team. A wonderful school.

Wynstones School

Church Ln, Whaddon, Gloucester GL4 0UF, UK – 01452 429220

Being a Rudolf Steiner adherent I am so overwhelmed that this School Wynstones has adopted Waldorf teaching derived from the first Waldorf School founded in Stuttgart and that Margaret Bennel and Coral Nokes have annexed to Rudolf Steiner method. It is good to establish a school away from the city especially when Wynstones School was founded in 1937 2 years before Europe got into struggle and that the German Waldorf School was closed by the nazi government. We should be thankful that the Waldorf Schools in Britain were able to thrive during the nazi conflict from 1939-1945. Margaret Bennel and Coral Nokes were aware that education needed a renewal and that Rudolf Steiner enforced this. Wynstones and other Waldorf Schools around Britain and the world must carry forth Rudolf Steiner teaching. Stephen Blasby

2nd oldest Steiner-Waldorf school in Britain. Huge campus and a manageable number of students. Remarkable facilities and beautiful infrastructures.

Gloucester Academy

Painswick Rd, Gloucester GL4 6RN, UK – 01452 428800

I think this school is a great place to learn. The staff is always cheerful and so nice, they always greet you with a huge smile. Teachers are mostly very helpful and always willing to go through things that the students might struggle with. I believe that the EAL team deserves special acknowledgement as they deliver an enormous amount of help and support to the students from other countries. I was one of them, and without the ladies from the EAL team I would not be able to achieve so much. I cannot express in words how grateful I am. However, there is a reason why I decided to give the school only 4/5 stars. I believe I am not the only one who faced multiple problems with cash machines in school. On multiple occasions I experienced problems with them, as the machine took my money without changing the balance on my account. Every time I reported a problem, people responsible for these machines stated that the machine had not register my money, therefore they were unable to give them back. This resulted in me not only loosing money but ending up hungry without lunch for the rest of the day.

This school is great for students who are facing problems and need to talk with someone. Lessons are more active so you can learn physical fitness. The other lessons are fun because you learn more than one thing at a time Such as in History you would learn about William the Conqueror not just about what he did but who he was.

A big thanks to the Salsa Squad team for a great evening of Salsa! After our first night of Salsering at the tithe barn, we went to the one in town and had a superb evening. We enjoyed experiencing Salsa in a different location and being able to take what we'd learnt in our last lesson and apply here.
