“I know a couple of people who’s children have gone to your academy and it has been a success on both occasions, my son is struggling with school so I bought him along to see if he would like it.
He made his mind up and we applied for a place straight away!!! He really enjoyed your presentation talk and hearing from students who were in similar circumstance to himself, he related to them really well.
I would also like to say that the young A-level student who was in the physics lab that day was fantastic, he really engaged my son in the things that were going on and took us through all the experiments asking him for answers and not saying you are wrong, but that he was right in a way and guiding him to the answer, he really is a credit to the department and school.
All of the science teachers and students that we met were fantastic and really engaging. Also the parent we spoke to was friendly and helpful, and the mentor we spoke to was informative, friendly and helpful with things that I as parent needed to know, also my some was very happy talking about his worries with her.
I just wanted to express what a lovely open day it was and to pass on my thanks to all those who made it a really lovely experience.”
