Students love coming to Seven Oaks School. In particular, they value our friendly, supportive educators, the practical way that they learn, the absence of limitations and the natural environment.
“I love how everyone is really open to things, I just love coming to school because there's so many things we can do. I like how we've learned to be open to new experiences. I also enjoy how we've learned to say positive things to ourselves when we're angry.” Jenny, 11
“At my old school there was pretty much zero freedom. We were forced to read certain books and I kinda felt like running away. It was so boring and I had no choice. Here we get choice about what we do even though we pretty much have to do them.” Nathan, 10
“I like the people and the teachers and I like how they teach people to learn. It feels like I’m free to do more. It’s really cool.” Leonie, 7
“It’s the best school I’ve been to. I like its personality. Almost every day I come here it is cheerful, really exciting to come. This school makes learning, which is usually boring, very fun.” Joe, 8
“I love this school so much! I love the fact that you can do what your goal is. I’m learning a lot of maths in all the building we’ve been doing.” Sarah 9
"I like the way people play together, love each other and care for people when they are hurt, how they share ideas, how people try to do stuff. I enjoy the people here because they use nice words." Fenton, 8
“I go to the cool school. We do reading, writing and ‘rithmetic, but also lots of other fun stuff!” Anna, 8
"I like it that there's lots of flowers and lots of trees and I like the nature about it." Devon, 5
