“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Oaker Wood was awesome; getting wet in rafting; being shot in paintballing; going to extreme heights in the Leap of Faith – I loved it all.

There once was a boy called Sam,
Who was as vicious as a ram,
If you give him a paintball gun
You’d better become a nun…
Or hide until you’re a gran!

There once was a boy called Dylan,
Who in paintball was quite the villain.
He would hide behind a tree,
And eliminate all bar three,
Whilst everyone would be holding their breath-un!
