Have been looking at Wickham Court School in West Wickham. Lovely school and the staff appear enthusiastic and committed to providing a positive and enriching experience for the children. Does anyone have experience of this school?

Hello

Wickham Court is an independent school so you should probably post this in the independent section for a better response. I looked into this school but did not apply for my ds as I felt the GCSE results could have been better for an indie school. I would suggest that you look into Bishop Challoner Bromley, which is pretty close as the results are better, excellent pastoral care and fab staff and the fees are quite slow. My ds was offered a place there but we decided to go for another school instead as ds chose that one.

Following our visit to their Open Day and a taster day ... we signed up for the primary department at Wickham Court for my DD. :D It looks great, the atmosphere good and the feedback from the parents and pupils of the achievement etc is wonderful. It appears this school is worth looking at and I will keep you posted on our experince. :D

Congratulations to all the children in Year 6 who took Grammar school entrance exams. Over 10 children in Year 6 sat Grammar school exams, all passed and all have been offered places. There are only 15 children in the Year 6, so this is a great result. Well done ... :D

Many also passed independent entrance exams with offers of places in local independent schools, and some gained scholarships.

For anyone considering a primary school in the area, the success in Year 6 says a great deal. :D

It was a terrific result and the parents are so pleased :D

Their Nursery and Primary School certainly achieve great results and this school is worth considering. The fees are so reasonable working out at under £500 a month for Reception - Year 3 and £500 a month for Year 4 - Year 6. We have been very impressed and delighted with our DD progress.

Will let you know when the fair is. :D

For anyone who did not get along to their summer fair it was terrific :D and the website shows stunning photography from the Eagle Heights Bird of Prey display http://www.wickhamcourt.org.uk/ ... and more :D

This week our DD left the primary school and we felt so sad to be leaving. :(

DD passed the 11+ and thoroughly enjoyed her time there and I cannot fault the primary school. For anyone considering a tutor or a private school ... please go and take a look at their primary school as the success in Yr 6 is amazing and worth every penny. :D

"Thank you Wickham Court and all the teachers for helping DD get where she is today and for helping her pass the 11+ and have more options in her life. Will miss you." :D .
