‘My recent visit to Hawksmoor really made my day: a group of Year 6 children approached me in the playground and engaged me in a conversation in a confident and polite manner. I was positively surprised by their willingness to initiate such a delightful conversation with a visitor.

The child I was scheduled in to see expressed her happiness to talk to me and share her positive views of the school – this was despite her significant social  communication difficulties. I even got a hug from her when I left!

I also observed a member of staff giving  a warm but firm talk to one of the classes, reflecting on the school values of kindness, respect and honesty. The children clearly  listened and reflected – it really touched my heart.

Thank you for a wonderful morning at Hawksmoor – visits like this is one of the reasons why I love my job!’

Working with the children and staff at Hawksmoor School has been such a gift. They are incredible learners, eager and able, and with an infectious passion for all things music. 

I have loved my time with them working on their Young Voices music and developing their singing abilities. With the staff at Hawksmoor being as supportive as they are, these children are in great hands and are set to become superstars in whatever field they choose. 

I look forward to working with them again in the future.
