September 2016- New Student - Parent Comment

"We feel so pleased with how D's first week has gone.  We can already clearly see a more relaxed son with less anxiety about school.  Previously he would leave school and offload the stress of the day on us by being very argumentative , shouting and generally presenting as quite stressed and wound-up.  This week, even with starting in a new environment, with new people, we have seen none of this.  He is keen to come in and doesn't give me verbal about not wanting to go to school like he used to, and is able to relay events from his day.  

We feel confident that D will be able to achieve so much more with yourselves by being himself, learning and absorbing information at his pace and level, and securing good friendships.  We look forward to the year ahead!"
