Respect – Team – Achieve

What our parents have to say

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our current parents think:

Purbrook Junior as a whole is truly an amazing school – the work and the way it is supporting us parents and children is outstanding through these hard times.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for all of your hard work. I am so grateful and appreciative for the sacrifices, dedication and risks you have all taken. I have felt quite comfortable sending [my child] in every day, knowing he has still been able to access an excellent education but in a safe and caring environment, no different to what he was receiving before the pandemic.

Current parent

All the teachers work extremely hard to provide our children with the tools needed to have successful homeschooling.
