Mrs Smith - Parent

' I am a parent of 4, all of whom have attended or still attend Gardners Lane Primary School.
All of my children have excelled within the school and have left with all the attributes needed and more, preparing them for secondary school.
I feel the school has supported all of my children excellently, each with different academic abilities. They have enabled them to all to flourish.
My eldest went on to Pates 6th form, then studied Forensic Psychology at Cardiff University.
Another gained a scholarship for her academic abilities into Cheltenham Ladies College. Gaining 11 A** in her GCSE exams. She is currently applying for a career in medicine.

Thanks to the teaching abilities of the staff, they have all provided the groundwork needed for them to excel.

I can’t thank the school enough for everything they have done and continue to do for my family.

Mrs Walker - Past Parent

'I have been at Gardners Lane everyday for the past eight years! My son settled into school very quickly with the help and support of both the teachers and teaching assistants. This support and caring role continued each year. He was always encouraged in everything he did - academically and with his love of sports. He was able to leave Gardners Lane with great satisfaction that his hard work and the fantastic range of experiences had given him the best possible start in secondary school. One teacher had given us help and advice on choosing schools which would best suit him - he got his first choice school and is continuing to do extremely well due to the grounding Gardners Lane gave him.

My daughter is currently attending Gardners Lane, although the school has changed a lot in this time the teaching staff are still dedicated to the children and their learning. The bond the children have with both teachers and teaching assistants help the children to engage in the learning and gain to the best of their ability.

Gardners Lane offer a wide range of after school clubs which are popular with the children. The staff are very approachable and greet both children and parents with a warm and friendly manner - they are always happy to listen to any concerns and will try to sort things out as soon as possible.'

Mr Smith - Previous Teacher
