 Sue - Telford and Wrekin

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help, support and hospitality in hosting the Education Inspection Framework Briefing.

The organisation was absolutely first class and everyone was made to feel incredibly welcome by both staff and students alike. Needless to say, the choir were amazing and created a really lovely atmosphere, as well as embodying the ethos of the new Ofsted framework! We received a number of very positive comments at the event from delegates who were equally impressed with the choir"s performance and felt it added some additional sparkle and energy to the event. I hope they have an amazing time in Spain next week and I am sure they will be excellent ambassadors for the school. 

Thanks again - your professionalism and attention to detail was very impressive and I really enjoyed working with you."

A very appropriate choice of music, that summed up the aspirations you have for every child at your school. I also wanted to thank you for the helpful and courteous manners of all your students who kindly gave up their time to help us have our refreshments and find our way. Please pass on my appreciation and thanks. They were outstanding ambassadors for your school."

Feedback from Easter Chocolate Hunt - April 2019

"Children have had a lovely time, lots of activities and fun!"


Bill & Helen Cooper

"We just wanted to say how fantastic Team 7 has been, along with all the teaching staff and management team at the school. It's a big leap from "little school" but Jack, has settled in far better than we could have wished for and we have no doubt this is down to the nurturing provided by Team 7 and the other staff. He is loving (perhaps loving is a little strong!) school life, and is really enthused about the enrichment programme, which is a credit to Mr. Burns and the rest of the team, who work tirelessly to make it a fun part of school, which not only assists the students but also their families."

I must say he comes home happy and is happy to go in to school, this has never happened! Thank you for making him feel welcome everyday."
