Sharing the children's enthusiasm as they learn about the world around them and their place within it; the excitement of learning and playing together; working with children as individuals: these are some of the joys of teaching the youngest members of the school.

I love Bawdsey School because we enter sports competitions. Alfie Class 2
I love Bawdsey because... the teachers are very kind. Mrs Rankin is the best. Whole of Class 2
“The boys are always talking about what they are doing at school. It’s full of opportunities, lots of trips and visits. The children display so much confidence and togetherness and this is evident at their Christmas plays and assembly’s. Its lovely to have fun after school clubs at minimal cost and wonderful for them to have access to the beach which we feel they use well (impromptu visit after Christmas lunch- brilliant!).” Mrs Pruden
Retracing these ten years, the reason we decided to send our boys to Bawdsey was because we thought the school would offer them the best possible start to their school career. This has been borne out. Past parent
A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.
Headteacher, quoting Forest E. Witcraft, scholar.
We are impressed that you are always open to new ideas.

Bawdsey has given my children the best start in life, with small class sizes so they get the attention they need led by caring, enthusiastic teachers. There is always extra curricular activities going on and exciting opportunities to be involved in. Jess Palmer Parent
