Re: Best primary school in Wandsworth?

One of the biggest issues I see in the state system is the number of pupils who don't have english as their first language, I know Broadwater has 73%, that cant be good for educating children surely ? My daughter has been at Broadwater for 6 years and I can honestly say that the high number of pupi...

Re: Tooting Bec

If we're talking about Tooting schools, both Broadwater and Smallwood should definitely get a mention as fantastic schools.

Re: Smallwood school

I am a governor at Smallwood and have been involved since 2010. It is a great school with an incredibly committed Head and staff team. The recent Ofsted is a great testament to the school and, as you will have seen, rated the school as Good with Outstandig Leadership and Management. I would massivel...

Re: Arrrgh, more politicans being hypocritical

I'm no Gove fan and that school does sound a bit selective but nonetheless, it will be much more of a mixture than any private school so I say, good on them! I would definitely tend to agree with Sarah Vine on this: “And it is also, let’s face it, about snobbery. Of course the parents of private sch...

Re: Tooting Primary School

I'm a very happy Broadwater parent - my daughter is in Year 2 and my son is in Nursery there (in his second year of Nursery has he started last year after turning 3 in September).
