Review about Oakleigh House Private School

Morale Francesca
Hello, I was hoping I could leave a school review, please do let me know for anything. The school is Oakleigh House Swansea: My son went to Oakleigh house in 2021 and we left after two terms, due to the general attitude of the school staff, starting from our arrival in the morning and the rather noticeable failure by the class teacher + teaching assistant to greet me (unless too obvious, on a handful of occasions), while hushing my son into class. With me, they seemed keener on email communication and generally avoided the friendly chat outside class, unlike what I noticed they did with other parents. Although I am a ‘questioning’ mum and want to form a good idea of what goes on with my child in school, especially at first, I thought that they didn’t take very well in particular to my enquiries about health&safety, which is a proper concern in general and more specifically for me in regard of my son’s EpiPen procedures. Their generally dismissive behaviour in such matters was cause for worries, as well as being rude and irritating, of course. My experience in brief: if you would like your child educated by some brusque teacher at a provincial, if posh, institution with very average educational standards - and are glad to splash out for all that - Oakleigh House is the place for you. Kind regards, FM
