Last week we asked the children why they thought their parents might have wanted them to come to Beech Lodge School.

These were their responses;

  • It’s different, fun and there are more practical activities
  • Its more adventurous
  • Its educational but more practical learning
  • The work is easier
  • There is more time to think for the children
  • The children and the staff are friendly
  • There is work experience to do with an adult coming along with me to help if I need it


We asked the children what they thought about the school, these were there responses:

  • I don’t feel under so much pressure
  • The work is easier and there aren’t as many tests
  • It is friendly and more relaxed
  • It is close to my home. I had to go to a school before that was so far from my home that I had to stay there. I hated it.
  • The teachers don’t rush you and you can take your time
  • We go on good trips
  • The teachers are nicer to you and don’t yell at you if you don’t know an answer
  • If you’re scared or something they don’t say’ “Deal with it!”. They help you to know what to do about it.
  • The teachers give you work that is hard but you can do it.
  • I’ve got a lot more friends here.
  • I like being with my friends here.
  • I wake up and think,” What am I going to be doing at school today?”
  • The teachers explain things clearly
  • There are fun lessons so you’re not bored all the time
  • You’re not stuck at a desk all day, you go outside to learn
  • The teachers are fair

Sounds good to us!
