“Brookways is so autism-friendly and has a fantastic feeling.”

“There is understanding that every child learns in a different way.”

I live close to the school in Old Arley and went to their Christmas Fayre today. I have had no involvement with the school before and only saw any children when they delivered the Christmas cards, which I thought was a lovely gesture. I just want to say how impressed I was with the boys and girls and the staff. Everyone was so polite and seemed to be having so much fun. I realise the fayre was mostly for the children's families but as a close neighbour I am grateful to have been invited and glad to have joined in. Thank you and well done.

"You have got a good measure of our child and we really like your straightforward, no-nonsense approach with her. Our child responds well to such consistent and firm boundaries. We are sure they will do well with you all at High Peak. Thank you."
