Head's Up

“Our aim is to provide an outstanding education which equips pupils with the qualities of character and confidence to see them through the next stage of their education and beyond.”

Stephen Ilett

Inside Scoop from a current parent

There is a very unique atmosphere at Port Regis that you can only appreciate fully in person. It is a place so full of positivity, inspiration and excitement.

The teachers are what stood out to me so clearly, they all, without exception (I’ve got four children there so have met many) are outstanding. They clearly see their roles as more than just a job, they give all their energy into what they do in a wholly positive way. As a result, the children flourish and achieve their potential. What more could one want as a parent?

I’m aware this sounds too good to be true, but I mean every word and have been a parent here for six years.

As Parents, We Love...

  • The teaching is outstanding. Inspiring, positive, giving one’s best, are all the qualities they instil in the children.
  • The children glow – they’re supported, encouraged without being pushed, and very well looked after.
  • The atmosphere is outstanding; everyone is there because they genuinely want to be.

Our Children Love...

  • Their days at school. They arrive happy to be back and always are buzzing when I collect them.
  • They are so happy with their friends and the variety of lessons.
  • The space and facilities are amazing and allow them to stretch and grow!
