“I discovered Spring Grove on Google and was instantly impressed. I felt this was the place for my children when browsing through your website. You come across as a welcoming and inclusive school and I believe my two will benefit from the ‘family’ atmosphere. The emphasis on good manners and conduct along with the caring, nurturing and encouraging approach particulary appeals to me. The outdoors aspect is an unexpected bonus.” New Parent (Nursery and Year 2)
“Both my wife and I attended SG in the 1990’s and loved every moment of our time there. We still have friends to this day from our school days at SG. The whole feel and ethos of the school was exactly the same when we look for our daughter and we loved that and want her to enjoy the same wonderful school that we both did.” New Nursery Parents
“We found Spring Grove after a web search of primary schools within easy access of the fast train service into London.

When I contacted the school they were quick to reply and provide information and seemed friendly and open to engaging with parents.” New Nursery Parent

“I’m so glad I was ill at the weekend. I didn’t want to miss school.” Year 1 Pupil
“We wanted to take the time to write and thank the Spring Grove staff for all the energy and effort you all put into life at SG. We never find there is enough time to stop and express our gratitude during the busy working week but wanted to do so now, at Christmas.
Our children have been at SG for six months and what an amzing time they have had so far! Moving the children has been the best decision we have ever made and the difference in them is immense.
A few weeks ago, from out of nowhere our daughter cuddled up to us and said ‘thank you’ for letting her go to SG. We asked her what it was she liked about the school and she said that she gets praised for things and that makes her feel good. She then went on to say how she has got to try out loads of new experiences that she never had the opportunity to do before especially in sport and music.
We have loved watching their confidence grow through all the praise and encouragement. Every single day, they are positively pushed out of their comfort zone, prforming in an aseembly or trying something new to eat.
Everyone at SG has made us feel so welcome and we feel lucky to be part of the school.
Thank you!” SG Parents
“I’m so glad I was ill at the weekend (and not a week day). I didn’t want to miss school.” Year 1 Pupil
“We arranged to view the Nursery and was so imporessed and felt so comfortable and at home, we decided on the spot to send both sons!”
“On attending the open day we instantly liked the atmosphere, ethos and values of the school. Furthermore, the small class sizes and high teacher:pupil ratio appealed to us. We want our son to become the best person he possibly can be and we feel that Spring Grove will play a large part in nurturing and caring for him outside of his home environment.” A New Parent
“I arrived in the middle of Mr D’s maths class and was fortunate enough to be able to sit in and watch / listen for around 20 minutes or so. I can now totally understand why my daughter is now enjoying Maths! Mr D’s session was lively, fun and, to sum up in one word, excellent! All the children were on-task and enthusiastic about answering. I even found myself understanding fractions, decimals and percentages. As a parent it was lovely to see all the children really enjoying maths. I drove home thinking how lucky I am to have two children at Spring Grove…you really do have a fantastic school with amazing staff!” Year 5 Parent
“I would like to extend my appreciation to Spring Grove, especially Bill Jones and Nikki Holy, for all the help they gave to ensure that our reception went smoothly. We had a fantastic day and many people commented how beautiful the school looked.” Grandparent

“Dear Mr Jones, thank you for teaching me Maths. It is one of my favourite subjects. You are my favourite teacher.” A Happy Pupil
“I wanted to write to you to say how very pleased we are with —‘s progress at Spring Grove. I can’t wait to hear at the end of each day what new sound he has mastered. It is so exciting to watch and listen to Miss Surtees’ enthusiasm and energy in her class.
Well done to Miss Surtees and Mrs Taylor and the Early Years.” A Reception Parent
“Dear Mr and Mrs Jones. As another school year draws to a close and as grandparents of —, we would like to thank you both, your colleagues and all your staff for the time, effort and skills that you have put in to prepare — with confidence for her new life at another school and for the challenges beyond Spring Grove.
As she begins the transformation from little girl to young lady, we can see that she has an excellent grounding in academic subjects. She has also enjoyed and achieved musically, artistically and, certainly, on the sports field. Perhaps, most importantly, she has been shown how to apply the ethos of the School to make a useful contribution to the life of her community.
We congratulate everyone on what has been achieved so far and wish you all continuing success in the future.” Grandparent
“Thank you very much for everything you have done for — and —-. They are thoroughly enjoying themselves and have come on leaps and bounds, both academically and on the sports field. All in all, we think you have a wonderful school.” A New Parent
“Thanks to you both for your never-ending enthusiasm and all your hard work for Spring Grove. It all goes towards making SG the fantastic school that it is – and it is always appreciated!” A Parent
“I simply have to tell you how wonderful it was to have the boys from Spring Grove as our “window display” in the Sue Ryder charity shop…they worked very hard playing their jazz…and drew crowds and applause. They and their talents – as well as their polite and personable manners – are a credit to your school.” A Grateful Grandparent!
