“What a joyous occasion - the celebration of Christmas  brought tears to our eyes and smiles to all the audience this morning! All the children were so confident and totally engaged in their parts! Every single child looked so happy and who would have known that there were so many absentees, resulting in last minute changes  and the juggling of parts.  Well done to  all the wonderful staff - including those responsible for the  props, costumes, sound, lighting, tea makers  and most of all - the children!”  (Governor, December 2022)

"We did enjoy the tea party last Friday.  Not only were the cakes delicious the weather was lovely.  The biggest plus to the afternoon were the children who were quite delightful and they carried out their duties perfectly.  We are thrilled to hear that the iPads are being put to good use and a use you didn’t expect, that is helping the two Ukrainian children communicate with their classmates. Hopefully they will settle in to life in the UK very quickly.  Chobham is very fortunate to have such a lovely school in its midst."  (Ipad benefactors, June 2022)

"The children, without exception, were polite and well-behaved, participating fully in the short time they were at the museum. It was an absolute pleasure to involve them - albeit very briefly - in Chobham's Stone Age - Romans period......ending with an introduction to Cebba.  Their visit made my day, and, I hope, gave them a (very) small insight into our area's history".  (The Chobham Museum, June 2022)

"I thoroughly enjoyed taking assembly this morning and it was so lovely to see the whole school together once again.  I was so impressed as Anne took us on a tour of the classrooms to experience RE teaching across the school. Without exception, the quality of teaching was first class and the children were all very well engaged in their learning and a great credit to the school as always. Please pass on my sincere thanks to the staff for allowing us to invade their classroom space - it was so inspirational!"  (Governor, May 2022)

"Please can you thank Mrs Tucker, and all the teachers, teaching assistants and children, for welcoming us into school this morning to see the children in RE lessons, as part of our Learning Walk.  We really enjoyed seeing each year group in their RE lesson and it was great to see so many children talking about what they are learning, and what this means to them".  Thank you! (Governor, May 2022)

"I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the children, they were so well behaved and polite.  More than that, their thoughtful responses to the reflective activities were wonderful, they are clearly used to thinking and reflecting about big questions”.  (Schools Officer, Diocese of Guildford, June 2021)
