“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.”

Year 5 Birmingham Trip…

Year 5 Birmingham Trip…

Year 5 have returned tired but thrilled with their Birmingham adventure.

The first day included a visit to the BBC studios at the Maillbox and an amazing evening performance of ‘Matilda’ at the wonderful Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre situated in the Chinese Quarter of Birmingham City Centre.

The following day they went to the ‘Thinktank’ Birmingham Science Museum, then following lunch they enjoyed a fun packed afternoon at the ‘Bowlplex’.

Before returning home they had a delicious visit to Cadbury’s World which included chocolate making and a 4D chocolate cinema experience – in fact anything chocolate !
