Queen Mary's High School

Upper Forster St, Walsall WS4 2AE, UK – 01922 721013

My daughter has enjoyed her time here, a great school run by very committed staff

Spent five amazing years at this school, miss it incredibly, especially the atmosphere and the feeling of having a family tie with everyone at the school. Just a lot of favouritism between teachers and students throughout the school. There's also the problem of Hydesville students who can sometimes be seen loitering around the back of the school attempting to sell drugs, but that's Hydesville's problem and it can't be eradicated as the students can't be forced to move, unfortunately as they do the same to all other nearby school too.

Walsall Academy Of Dance

Butts Rd, Walsall WS4 2BJ, UK – 01922 613281

Fabulous long established dance school with very experienced staff. My children love their lessons and receive lots of support and encouragement from the dedicated teachers. Lovely environment and nice to have somewhere to stay for a good coffee during their classes.

My daughter has been coming to WAD since October 2014 and she has progressed so much not just in her dance but in most aspects! It's taught her discipline, and plenty of social aspects she can put into practice outside of dance. Every member of staff senior and student goes above and beyond for each member of their classes and so much more effort goes into it than most places I took her previously. Always a friendly and helpful face at hand whenever needed. Feedback from every lesson she goes to is always readily available if needed and a lot of times the teachers will tell me off their own initiative how she has done. The shows are amazing things to be able to see first hand what she has been learning. Welcoming and friendly place that my daughter will continue attending for years to come!
