I posted before some time ago. I have two kids at Alderbrook - one in Nursery and one in Year 1
I too started off as a disgruntled parent as we live very close to Honeywell and Belleville and should by rights have got a space..:
But as it turned out I am very happy with the school and my kids are thriving and I have been so impressed with the quality of the the teaching. I have met some truly lovely parents at the school and overall it has been a very positive experience for me and my children
we live just off Broomwood Road and it is a bit of a distance but nothing too bad - to be honest my main problem is getting the kids dressed and fed and out of the house rather than the distance itself!
I drive quite a lot but it's a nice walk too
