Max Nugent, former pupil at the Villa

I spent three years at the Villa, from Reception until Year Two, and as part of the first class to go through the school I only have good memories of my time there.

The atmosphere of our little class of under ten children was always so friendly and relaxed, which made it a lovely environment to be in and really helped me to come out of my shell. From the annual sports days in the neighbouring field and the exciting day trip to France (I still have the souvenirs on my mantelpiece) to the Nativity play when I had to be removed by the head teacher for misbehaving (ironically I was playing an angel!) and the final day of year two when half of the staff were in tears, I will never forget the years I spent at the Villa.

Afterwards, I went on to attend Dulwich College for eleven years, and I am now studying for a German degree at Oxford University.
