NLGS School Testimonials

We asked our students how their journey at NLGS is so far.
Hear what they have to say…

“Being selected as a part of the school counsellor is the most memorable part of this academic year so far. Even though I don`t know what the future holds, I know that with all the new things I learn each day, I will be better prepared for it.”
Vildan, Year 7

“My favourite lesson so far is English because I can let my creativity run wild and everything requires deeper thought and I love that. One subject that I never thought I would study was Computer Science but since coming to North London Grammar and Prep School, I’ve changed my mind completely and now I do extra work at home for fun! Because of the pandemic, I don’t really have a most memorable trip.”
Amelia, Year 7

“I have learned a lot coming to this school and it has definitely boosted my confidence in speaking more in class. My favourite subject is English because I get to write with my creativity and comprehension is also very enjoyable because it requires knowledge to find the specific evidence in a text to answer the question.”
Sauren, Year 7

“My most memorable at North London Grammar and Prep School so far was when we made marshmallow towers in Science.”
Imaad, Year 7

“I believe this is the most amazing school I feel set for my future career. My favourite subject right now is Math. Finally, the English teacher has changed me to like English and the R.E teacher.”
Trishil Ray, Year 7

“My favourite subjects are; English, Science and Drama right now. I feel that NLGS has changed my view of both education and life in many ways. I feel as if their environment is soothing and understanding and in NLGS I feel I am developing and learning much better. Some subjects I prior to joining NLGS didn’t enjoy, but I now do. Thus, I find learning at NLGS much more productive, effective and fun.”

Aletdinov, Year 11

“I colourfully remember the days when all of us gathered in the dining hall for different events. These moments were especially remarkable due to the shared opinions of students, which was a great experience to sit with peers around one table.”
Ovezdurdyyev, Year 11

“Selecting one reminiscence of all the good memories to write about my time in NLGS is Extremely unfeasible. From the day I joined the school, with absolutely no idea of how I will get on and blend in as a student, to making friendships that I know will last forever, we’ve been able to create memories for every day. Behind all that, we’ve had my cohort and teachers, giving me the energy, enthusiasm and drive to keep going to thrive to success.”
Senadheera, Year 11

“Year 11 was the last year and the best year it was not easy for anyone having ten different subjects trying to achieve the best we could. But we also made fond memories we had our teachers Mrs Caya and Mr Florin they supported us all the time. It was nice to have teachers that you know that is always there for you. Meanwhile, one best memory was the paintball trip it was immensely fun.”
Evans, Year 11

“The most memorable time in my last year was when we went to The Nutcracker Ballet”
Kos, Year 11


NLGS Parent Testimonials

“I find NLGS to be a great, progressive school and a wonderful environment for children to thrive. My most memorable and enjoyable time was the first Iftar dinner the school had, which was open to the whole school and even family members. Therefore, the food was great (as always) and the ambience was relaxed and welcoming. Finally, we will miss the team after our son finishes this year and would be happy to be a member of the board of governors, contributing to the school’s further progress.”
