An amazing day today at Pochin as the students from France arrived for the day. A warm and friendly welcome always extended by all for a familiar face and the happiest and most well mannered students is a real credit to the staff. Thank you so much for having me.

I have left The Pochin School and I am missing it so much. Some advice for people who want to join the school then go for it because the teachers are so friendly and the atmosphere is ecstatic. So many friendly students you will instantly make new friends. Missing all the teachers so much.

Hello everyone, i am an ex pupil. Since leaving Pochin School for Wales i have missed this brilliant school so much and all of the teachers that come along with it. I found it interesting to see so many of the teachers that taught me in school are here along with so many others. I have heard about the new advances that have been going on to the school. Its been great looking back at school.

I am sad that is my last year at Pochin, but at the same time, I'm privileged to have attended such an amazing school. Mr cotton has worked extremely hard on making the school a better school for our pupils - considering the new classrooms are great, and high tech! Thank you.

As i watch our boys Henry and Harry skip up the lane to attend their last day of their first year at the Pochin School i can hardly believe they have been at school a whole year and they are still only 4! Their first year of their educational journey has in my eyes been a great success. Their progress has been amazing to watch as each week they develop. I am immensely proud that the boys attend the Pochin School just as i did. The teachers, assistants and all else the boys come into daily contact with have made their first year a delight, and i thank them all for their continued support, care and dedication.

It's been a fantastic walk down memory lane...Thank you! I attended Barkby between 1970 and 1976, it was the happiest period of my schooling life. Regardless of the growth at the school it is a real pleasure to see you doing so well and keeping up the standards I remember. I was, and remain, proud to have had such excellent foundation to my education at Barkby Pochin School. See you all at the Autumn Fair tomorrow!

Since visiting the school and looking at your website in detail, i must say that the school has made massive advances in your learning methods and all the new technology is exellent, When i used to be at Barkby i remember it was about the time when blackboards were a thing of the past and new whiteboards were just being brought in, also everything was handwriten and not word processed on computer.
