Parents’ Testimonials about our school:

Dear prospective parents, as a parent to three sons I know how difficult it is to make the right choice of school for your son/daughter to attend. Garfield Primary School is an amazing school as a whole, it has a great community feel, it has outstanding teachers, Mrs Khwaja the head teacher is phenomenal and her positivity reflects on all the staff at school. The early years teachers and ta’s are exceptional. The care and support they give to each child is brilliant. They have excellent resources and facilities that creates a fun and enjoyable learning environment which helps your child explore and maximise their potential. Every morning at drop off and pick up your welcomed warmly and that gives reassurance to me and my child, if you ever need to speak to the teacher she is always approachable and willing to take as much time needed to answer any questions or concerns you have. My son has developed in so many areas since he started in October 2020 and is now ready to start reception in September thanks to the high quality of teaching and care the staff have given him. I highly recommend Garfield Primary School and assure you that it will be the best decision you’ll make.

Michael’s mum, May 2021

Ronni is my only child, so when the time came to find a school for him, I found it hard to decide. I asked my friends and some mums in the park about the schools in the area. A lot of them were talking very positively about Garfield school, so I gave it a try and I don’t regret it. I’m very happy and my son is happy too. Adelina and Hannah are very good teachers and I can see lots of good changes in my son. He knows all the letters and numbers and many songs too. Adelina makes you and your child feel very special. I highly recommend Garfield Nursery and I also applied for Reception Class.

Ronni’s mum, May 2021

Garfield Primary School has really surpassed our expectations. It’s a lovely, warm and nurturing school environment with wonderful teachers and school staff. Everyone is so helpful and my daughter has settled into Reception so well. Even with remote learning, the school continues to make both students and parents feel supported and valued. Thank you Garfield.

Ms Kannas, March 2021

Both of my children attend here, it is a great school. The staff are friendly and welcoming. My children love it here. Would recommend this school to anyone!

Ms Delgiudice, March 2021

All three of my children are attending Garfield Primary School since September 2020 and it’s the best decision we have made as parents. We as a family agreed that our children were not getting enough attention and lack of proper education from our previous school. After reading positive reviews (previous teachers) about Garfield Primary School we enrolled all our sons to this astonishing school. It’s a lovely school and the teachers are marvelous! They show care and compassion every day at school and it positively reflects on my children’s learning, social and inner personal skills. Mrs Khwaja the Headteacher is the most positive, knowledgeable, approachable and amazing person I’ve ever met. Mrs Khwaja cares, assures, assist and goes beyond the threshold for all the children (including parents) and shows this every day at school drop off and pickup with a smile and a warm welcome. The school administration team is very professional and welcoming, a special thank you to Mrs Jordan who settled my sons to the school so well. My children look forward to going to school everyday. This alone shows the excellency of Garfield Primary School. I recommend any prospective parents to send their most precious children to Garfield Primary school for better education, superb knowledge of curriculum, positive inter-personal and intellectual developmental skills, and most importantly positive inner personal development of your child. This school not only prepares your child to succeed in secondary school, it also provides integrity and acknowledgment of your child’s future successes.

Ms Mutlu, March 2021

I have had three of my children attend Garfield Primary, one of which has now gone on to secondary school. I have found Garfield to be an Outstanding school with friendly and highly skilled teachers who always show the upmost attention to the children. The school is a newly built property which holds excellent facilities for the children, some of which include excellent music, library, and IT facilities, which in-turn creates a fun learning environment for the children to develop and maximise their full potential, enabling them to be the best they can be. I would highly recommend this school to parents considering a school in the area for their children to attend, especially early years which is extremely exceptional.

Kadijatu Constanti, March 2121

Lovely school, my child settled in straight away and loves attending. She’s always talking about what she’s learnt. Breakfast club and after school club are great too.
