"Cottesmore Academy is incredibly inclusive. They are great at finding the gaps in the children’s learning and building on this. Boosting the children is at the core of the school and both my children have become more confident and sure of themselves because of this. During my children’s time at school, it is evident that the children are cared about as a whole child not just their academic achievements.”
