Hi there mumsnetters my DH, DS (7), DD (5) & I are moving to the Stamford area. We don't know have friends or family in the area and I'm looking for any advice anyone can offer on schools in the area - all very gratefully received! We want to make sure we live in the best location. Both primary for now and secondary for later. Thanks v much!

Hi salpal! I live just over the border in northamptonshire, but know Stamford well.
I went to the girls school. Not sure what the primary or secondary school options are like now tbh. I hope te move goes well. It really is a lovely town.

Hiya - I hate to sound like I'm shamelessly plugging, but I am! I hope you've now moved to the area and have settled in, and the children are happy in their schools. I just wanted you to know that we run a class called Gymbobs for school age to 7 year olds at the Arts Centre on a Thursday night at 4.15. We do relay races, group games, a short aerobics session and lots of climbing, balancing and co-ordination time on our specialist equipment.

If you'd like to know more please e-mail me at, or visit

We hope to see you soon xx

Hello, I'm also going to have a shameless little plug (if that's OK?!) I hope you're enjoying your new home, it's a lovely area!

If your children would like to meet a lovely bunch of local children of a similar age, you might want to have a look at The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts, Rutland. We run a Saturday morning academy from 9.45am - 1pm, and have lots of boys too!

It's great for confidence building and extending their social network, and there are free taster sessions throughout the year. Anyway, enough plugging! You can find out more by looking at or emailing me at

Thanks, and good luck!
