Clifton Day Nursery

5 Sutton Way, York YO30 6JF, UK – 01904 674000

My daughter has attended Clifton Day Nursery since she was 9 months old and she has thrived in the small caring nursery. We often comment that it is like her second home and she is so happy and content there. There is a real sense of love and care and the team strive to help the children play and learn. The large secure garden is brilliant and messy, natural play is positively encouraged. The early years foundation is covered effectively but this is balanced well with time to play and be a child. If you want a small and relaxed environment for your child to grow into a happy and confident person then this is the place.

Such a lovely nursery, both our children have gone here and flourished. Even after moving to the other side of York, we still continue to use this nursery. A more loving, caring and personal nursery you will not find. Clifton Day Nursery really deserves to be recognised for the work they do. They are Fantastic!!

Not just a school, but a community. From birth (Gentle Beginnings), through the toddler years (Parent & Child Groups), pre-school (Kindergarten) to the Main School (age 6 - 14) York Steiner School offers a nurturing environment and a rounded education. Highly recommended.

Best school ever.

Bootham School

49-57 Bootham, York YO30 7BU, UK – 01904 623261

As parents we find Bootham School brimming with many qualities, there is a calming atmosphere punctuated with a strong sense of purpose,- forming a perfect baseline to facilitate learning and self confidence. "Adventurous & Liberating" is the School mantra. Our two children have made some wonderful friends and from starting Bootham in year seven, have never looked back. The teaching staff are supportive and motivating. The activities after 1600 hrs add another dimension to the learning and development of children, giving them a taste of things they (and we) would probably never think of in the fast paced world in which we live. Finally, the food is consistently of the highest quality and the children (& us on Saturdays),look forward to every meal !

As a former pupil, I cannot sing their praises high enough. I came from a school (St Olaves) where I was bullied for many years. I was generally miserable and had low self confidence. Bootham brought me out of that shell. The teachers were all lovely, I may not have liked every subject, but i still liked the teachers. The ethos and attitude of staff and pupils quickly formed me into a totally different more caring person. I was much happier, my grades rose and I joined as many after school activities as I could. At my previous school I never wanted to stay longer than I had to. At Bootham I never wanted to leave. School lunches were also amazing, In the 7 years since I left I have tried to keep my home food as varied and healthy as the lunches I got at school. Friends and family love the food I make and I still don't think it is as good as my school food was. I wasn't the only pupil to go to Bootham after being bullied, I think it attracts a lot of kids who are kind and bright but have been stifled through adverse experiences. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is more introverted and wants to develop in a caring and protective environment which still prepares you for the world ahead. My friends and employers have commented on how kind and hard working I am. These are qualities I am certain I formed during my time at Bootham. In the sixth form they give you more freedom and if staff think you are capable they stop spoon feeding information. Deferring to guiding your own research. This was a invaluable skill when it came to university.

The Minster School

Minster Yard, York YO1 7JB, UK – 0844 939 0000

Please note this a review for the architecture of the building (as it is currently an independent preparatory school); anyway, the Gothic architecture of the building is beautiful.

Best school ever... I will always have the fondest of memories and the largest amount of respect for this school - a great working enviroment with fantastic results and a warm community.
