Hello , We are relocating to Notts wirh our 2 boys aged 5 and 8 . We saw Ranby House and loved it and the head was amazing . My question is : what are the other mums like ???? I won't be working to begin with and will know no one ! Ds1 is very shy and had had a miserable time at school here in south Bucks . Ds2 is happy chap .amy advice gratefully received !!! Xx
I went to school at Ranby many, many years ago - and an old school friend sends her kids there. Its a lovely school. There should be a PTA of sorts there from memory so maybe ask to be put in touch with them?
My name is Emma and I am a current parent at Ranby and I'm also part of the parent group there. I remember joining as a new parent and how daunting it can be but it really is a very friendly school, not only for the children but parent's too. The parents group organise regular coffee mornings and social events such as a Christmas lunch and fair, quizzes and our next event - a race night. The school also has new parent socials where you can meet all the other new parents as well as the teaching team.
I have 2 kids there but am a relatively new Ranby mum. I work full-time so don't have masses of interaction with the other parents but any I have had have been positive. Both my kids are really happy at Ranby and I'm sure yours will be too. Good luck with the move.
