Rick's Driving School Bristol

318 Armidale Ave, Bristol BS6 5BQ, UK – 07889 041989

Thanks to Rick, I passed my driving test first time! Every lesson I completed with Rick I felt myself progressing steadily. He teaches with patience and I never felt under pressure or a lack of control. His calm and reassuring manner meant I became confident behind the wheel when I was very shaky to start with. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to pass their test, and more importantly, for those looking to become an experienced, confident driver :) Thank you!!

Rick is an absolutely excellent instructor/teacher and he helped me to not only pass my driving test first time but to also become a more confident and competent driver for the long term. I’d whole heartedly recommend him to anyone who is wishing to drive as he’s very professional, friendly but firm and patient driving instructor. Thanks mate! 😃

I used to go here for nursery but its not the best place.The reason i moved to Nova primray which used to be avon is because the spaces were full,i made some friends and when i moved most of them were there,we have always been in the same class,im in year 4 now so i dont have much memorey of this school,i still see my teacher come out of her house sometimes,im glad i went to this nusery otherwise i would only have 1 friend who has moved schools now.

Friendly staff and supportive environment

Nova Primary School

16 Barrack's Ln, Bristol BS11 9NG, UK – 0117 903 0446

Really pleased with how my son is progressing through the school. He started in reception and is now in year 4. School communications could be a little better, however, communications where it matters most such as school incidents are good, just sometimes letters about class trips or parents evenings are very short notice (especially for working parents). The facilities are good and I think the management team leads well. I'm excited to see the changes that happen when Mrs Morris takes over as head teacher in 2018, as we have seen a lot of positive changes since her appointment as deputy a couple of years ago.

This is my school,it used to be Avon primray,this is a big change,now im in year 4 i got new friends,plus my school is green not blue,im sad its green because i dont really like green,plus my friends are moving school,its hard to get to school on time though because school here starts at 9am.
