Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School

339/341 City Rd, London EC1V 1LJ, UK – 020 7833 9388

Hopes and Dreams has been a blessing in our lives. Our daughter is now 30 months old and she has been in the nursery since she was about 14 months. Equally in all rooms she has received the best care. All practitioners and teachers, and specially her key persons has been so loving and dedicated, supporting her in her development with love, patience and understanding of her needs. They have been, not only teaching her about colors, numbers, letters, etc, but more importantly for us, they have been teaching her about values such as respect for herself and others, and are encouraging her to grow as a confident and independent little person, preparing her to seek and meet challenges in life. It is always hard to live our children with other people, and for us, as full time working parents, It give us a peace of mind to trust our little treasure to the hands of the hopes and Dreams team everyday. We are positive that our daughter is safe and loved and we enjoy following her day to day experiences though the daily reports, journey books and observations in My Montessori Child website. Thank you very much Hopes and Dreams!!!

My children attended this warm and inviting Nursery from when they were 5 months old. My son now 10 and daughter 5 experienced all the age groups. They have both turned out to be very socialable and academic individuals and I feel that credit goes to the long standing practitioners and professionals that my taught my children over those vital early years. The staff showed a clear commitment to the individual needs of my children with their loving and caring attitude and I believe this was the best start I could have given them. This Nursery was truly home from home.

Notre Dame Roman Catholic Girls' School

this school is great! i had a hard time at another school but this school knows how to treat pupils right and with respect. they always make you do better and the teachers are da best!

Not sure what the previous reviewer was on when writing their comment. Have visited the school many times and the teachers really do care about the education of the students. They really put in time and effort to help these young women achieve their very best, even the more 'disruptive' students. If I had a daughter I would send her here without question. (P.S. It seems a shame that some of the more 'irked' former pupils felt the need to leave negative reviews on here. I'm sure they will see what a positive difference the school made to them when they grow up)

Independent Schools

Charterhouse Square School & Nursery

40 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6EA, UK – 020 7600 3805

Charterhouse Square School is founded by original headmistress Jamie Mason with school fees set at £425 per term! Over the course of the next two decades we go on to gain a reputation for all-round academic performance. In March the school becomes part of Cognita – a worldwide group of schools founded by Sir Chris Woodhead, former head of Ofsted. In December Caroline Lloyd takes over as headmistress fifteen years after first joining the school. When space becomes available in an adjacent building, the school expands to occupy a total of seven floors in our much-coveted Barbican location. This allows the school to add a dedicated Early Years area, a school library and an art room. n further work to improve the school site, the entire basement and ground floor of number 40 is completely remodelled. The addition of bi-folding glass doors to link our Green Room to its outdoor sand and water area is a particular hit with the children. Charterhouse Square School celebrates its 30-year anniversary with a surprise party for the children and a ball for parents, teachers and friends of the school. The school is also featured in The Good Schools Guide for the first time.

Adult Education

Westminster Adult Education Service

219 Lisson Grove, London NW8 8LW, UK – 020 7297 7297

My experienced was superb, dedicated with untiring support given by the tutor through out the course until it was succesful in the end. I'm highly recommended this training centre.

The Wheel-Throwing Intensive course is excellent. Tutors are knowledgeable - supportive and attentive if you're a complete beginner but happy to let you go off and do your own thing if you have some experience. A previous review mentions hidden charges - at the end of the course, there is a small fee (based on weight) if you would like any of your pieces to be fired in the kiln but this is perfectly reasonable. Really enjoyed it and learnt a lot in a short space of time - the other students were great too.

Westminster Adult Education Service

Lupus Street, Pimlico, London SW1V 3AT, UK – 020 7297 7297

really good teachers that make such an amazing amount of effort! but unfortunately i do feel that this college lacks resources. people with disabilities in the class require personal assistance ... unfortunately these poor people are left to deal with there own situations or the teacher has to take time out to show them. when i studied my graphic design level 2 the people in my class .. i made some good friends and i couldn't have asked for a better teacher but again i do feel that we lacked resources. The people at reception ... some of them are really friendly and some of them are just really unhelpful. The facilities at this college really do need to be improved but if your looking for somewhere as just a stepping stone then definetly book in ... the teachers are very experienced.

Bodyology Massage School

Student Central, University of London Union, Malet St, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HY, UK – 020 7100 7903

I discovered Bodyology School of Massage thanks to one of my friend who trained by Bodyology as well. It was such a nice discovery while I was thinking to become massage therapist and looking for a good, reliable school here in London where invest my money and time to get a professional certification. It was a lovely journey with Dror, Simon and Sally, wonderful and passionate teachers. A memorable experience with all my classmates as well as colleagues! Bodyology is an excellent way to introduce yourself in Holistic Massage, learning many different massage techniques. Studying anatomy, physiology, pathology and practicing a lot, makes the difference in starting your career as massage therapist. Thanks Bodyology

As a massage therapist , I've been awarded top rated salon 2017. As so many clients rated my massage treatments with 5 stars. I would like to say Thank You!! To The Bodyology Massage School, for providing a high standard of training. The theory classes were interactive, this helped me to retain information for longer. In the practical classes, we learnt how to tailor massage treatments to each clients individual needs. My clients always comment on how much they benefited from my massage treatments. As a graduate I continue to learn from Bodyology, though the virtual campus content and having access to the videos from my practical and theory classes.

I studied English here on a scholarship almost ten years ago, it was definitely a life-changing experience. Got to meet people from all over, and even though I've forgotten the teachers names, their classes and passion for teaching have still got a very warm place in my heart. Happy I got to experience London with IH, hope to come back for a CELTA or DELTA one day, hopefully soon.

Eternamente agradecidos con Aladdin. Our experience at IH London has been amazing. We were a group of eight students and three teachers from Plottier, Argentina. We are most grateful for Aladdin´s 24/7 assistance to our group. Not only has he been there with us at the residence and school, but he also has shown us all the wonderful places London has to offer and....and even much more! When rating International House, Aladdin, our assigned IH Senior Staff member, takes all the credit! Thank you Aladdin for doing everything for us! We owe you everything for such a superb experience in London! You´ve made us enjoy every single minute of it! Thank you for your organization, responsibility, human values... and your loyal friendship! If there were problems, Aladdin was there to solve it. Than you Aladdin! We are deeply grateful for your tremendous job at IH! Eternamente agradecidos!

Bloomsbury International English Language School

6-7 Southampton Pl, London WC1A 2DB, UK – 020 7242 2234

The school’s and accomodation‘s location is good. Unfortunately the staff was not as caring as I expected, it is ridiculous how the school gets along with complaining. However, the school was a good point for meeting new people and also most of the teachers were funny and friendly. Sadly I had the feeling that they care more about the money they make then about their students to be satisfied.

My 10 years daughter Laura has attended a 3weeks English course in Bloomsbury International, and I wish to thank all people who assisted and supported her during her presence in the school. It was an amazing experience for her, she met very nice schoolmates and her teacher Maria was smart, funny and very professional at the same time. Laura felt that she was working hard every day, but also having much fun! we think this is very important especially for young learners. At the end she didn't want to go back home :-) We recommend the school to everybody!

I very much enjoy my Spanish lessons with Antonio who has managed to take me from zero to being able to hold a steady conversation in one year. I have found the mix of structured lessons and conversation to be very beneficial to my learning and I would highly recommend a one-to-one class with Lingua Clinic.
