What's being said

Great school. Great teaching team. School does an amazing job at supporting ALL my child's needs. They have always gone the extra mile for him. So thank you all. You do a great job!
Fabulous school with a friendly atmosphere. Staff and the Headteacher are approachable. I cannot praise the school highly enough.
For the past 9 years, through 2 children, I have always felt NPS goes the extra mile to support it's students in all areas of the curriculum. The staff are fantastic, hard-working and very approachable. It is a great school and I am glad we chose it all those years ago.
This school has always been a positive influence on my children (2 of which didn't want to leave!) I have recommended this school to several people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. High praise for all the teachers and assistants who make the school what it is!
Great team of staff at NPS. Ladies at reception are so helpful. Newsletter and Facebook page are very informative and helpful. Breakfast club - excellent - my child raves about it. Love the Friday celebration assembly. The sense of pride and encouragement felt is overwhelming - a wonderful celebration of the children.
Thanks for the beautiful memories, good times and great learning experiences for Adam, Faith and Rose! Truly has been a life time adventure for the that will last a lifetime of memories! Hope to visit Neston again in the future!
