What Our Parents Say


“I was very nervous about my daughter starting secondary school; however, I could not be prouder of how well she has adapted, or more grateful to the school for their support during her transition. Since she was offered a place, Bow staff went above and beyond to ensure she felt comfortable and confident through regular visits and communications – she always knew what was going on at Bow School and what there was to look forward to, and had the opportunity to attend Summer School, school performances and opportunities to meet their new school friends. She is already talking about Sixth Form!” 


“I am so pleased with the progress my son has made since starting secondary school at Bow School. He found his feet very quickly, and often comes home motivated to work on homework and projects and. He has grown so much in confidence, always willing to try new things and blossoming in independence. The school maintains a strong sense of pastoral care, the highest standards of teaching and exciting extra-curricular programme”.

“The Transition Programme and events at the school whilst my son was in Year 5/6 meant that he was excited and confident to begin at Bow School, and I was properly prepared to support him through the transition too”. 

 Year 12 Parent

“It feels like a long time ago, visiting schools to find one that I felt was perfect for my son. However, as soon as we visited Bow, we both knew it was the right fit. He recently achieved a brilliant set of GCSE results and predicted to repeat her success now in the Sixth Form, and we both know that his teachers efforts and support played a key role in this. He has been at Bow School for six years, but still the endless opportunities he experiences fascinate me”. 

 Year 8 Parent

“Since my daughter started at Bow, she has discovered so many new things! Every day she is at a new club, meeting new people and experiencing new things. As a parent, there is nothing you want more than to know your child is happy, and I feel so reassured that we made the decision to send her to Bow”. 

 Year 9 Parent

“There was never any question in the matter where my daughter would go to secondary school. We live locally, and from friends and family I often heard great things about Bow – their continuously improving results, impressive progress rates and that they focus on developing the whole child. I am so pleased with our decision and to see my daughter thrive”.
