We have just moved into the area and were looking for a school place for our 2.5 DD. I came across Park Hill school, does anyone have experience with this school (good or bad)? Please share.

Both my DCs went there up till age 7. The youngest left 3 years ago.

Lovely, friendly little school. Prepares well for local preps - has good links with a lot of them. Small premises, but makes good use of local sports facilities - Hawker Centre. Malden pool and Richmond Park. Not a problem as the under 7s really don't need vast state-of-the-art sports facilities.

The best thing about the school is that it is non-selective but still gets a lot of DCs into good local preps - without any "counselling out" of the less academic.

It was a lovely start to education for my DCs and they still speak fondly of their time there.

I agree, really lovely little school, the teachers are really nurturing, the space is good.
My son is starting there in September, my brother went there (a few years ago, he's 38!).
