What You Say About Us

Feedback from parents whose child moved on to Year 7 in July 2020

'I thought you might like to hear what a glowing parents evening G had last night. She is working 2nd in the year group for Maths, her English teacher is impressed with her ability to argue her view point and write both creatively and explore text and her Science teacher feels she shows real curiosity. Everyone else was similarly impressed, and I know this is in huge part to all the effort you and other SJ staff have put in to help her develop. I'm sure there are many other former SJ students who had a similar experience.' May 21
