What Our Parents Say

 


“Just wanted to say thank you for this morning’s coffee and tour with Mr Pawson. Great to see the school on a normal working day. My son is so enjoying school life, long may that last.  Always good to have a happy child. It does confirm to me that we made the right choice of school for him.”
(Year 7 parent – 2018)


“I have been absolutely blown away by the support and teaching that X received this year. I made a leap of faith many years ago to send X to a school that had no building no teachers etc., but it has been an absolute pleasure to watch the school evolve into what you have achieved today.

So again just a great big thank you from me for the support, care and encouragement that you all showed X.”
(Current parent)


“I just wanted to say how absolutely uplifting last night’s concert was.

From start to finish, every single act/year group performed exceptionally well. From singing solo to harmonising the children blew the audience away! The costumes, make up and choreography were delightful. Please congratulate the staff involved and pupils!”
(Parent – March 2018)


“I just wanted to thank you all for an informative and enjoyable tour and talk. Staff and children alike seemed calm, relaxed and at ease despite the obvious pressures today must hold for you.

I was particularly enamoured by the students who choose to stand up in front of so many people and give a speech. All of them were exceptional with their own individual styles and it is exactly this which reaffirms the choice we made together with our son who is currently in year 8 and the choice which we will no doubt make with our daughter who is currently in year 6.”

“I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the outstanding performances from the year 10’s drama assessment yesterday!! They all did amazingly! But all this could not be possible without the dedication, support and guidance they take from your teaching so I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and commitment.

I think you are fantastic teachers and these students are very lucky to have you!!”
(Parent – May 2018)


“X’s teaching style has really struck a chord with my son – he’s opened his eyes to the enjoyment & possibilities of the sciences – their breadth & depth. As a direct result of X’s impact, my son has aspirations of taking science on into A-levels (Physics & Biology – he’s less certain about Chemistry…), GCSE results allowing… “

“I just wanted to say congratulations to the Trinity students that caught the new no.1 bus that goes through Riverhead and Chipstead, I was one of only two adults using the bus yesterday and the behaviour of your children was impeccable, they were friendly, happy and very very sensible!

They were a credit to your school and their parents!!!”
(Passer-by – March 2018)


“Just a quick email to say how I loved the open evening and your school! And I will be putting you as first choice for my twin boys for 2018 and will keep my fingers crossed.

But the main reason for emailing is to let you know how amazing our year 7 guide. What an amazing ambassador for your school. She showed us everything we needed to see and patiently waited whilst we participated in activities, she also explained the school’s expectations of each and every student, showed my boys how her timetable worked and pointed out and explained all areas. She was fabulous!!”
(Prospective parent – October 2018)


“…said that she absolutely loved the school, the atmosphere was so friendly and seemed genuinely so, the teachers were young, passionate and enthusiastic, and the environment light, fresh and bright.”
(Prospective student – October 2018)


“Today I attended the Open Morning at Trinity School with my son. I just wanted to feed back what a credit the children at the school were to all of us visiting parents. We had a young girl in year 7 together with a young man from year 8 who were helpful, polite and shared so much information and answered every question we had. We were also hugely impressed with the presentations by each of the young people at the Headteacher’s talk.

Thank you for confirming our prayers and our wishes that it would be made clear as to the school that we should apply for our son – it helps that Trinity School is the one he wishes to attend. Our application will be forthcoming!!”
(Prospective parent – October 2018)


“Please thank all the young people, as well as the 6th form who assisted on car parking duties who all assisted to make it such an affirming visit. Thank you finally to Mr Pawson who encouragingly demonstrated the priorities of the school through the vision and the ethos of the school. It is easy to have words, but more important to live these out daily through the school.”

“Trinity came across to us as a very caring, safe, nurturing environment.”

“What a terrific bunch of dedicated teachers.”

“I’ve come away from the school feeling very positive about not only my children’s future, but going forward, the school’s future.”

“I’ll be brief – but my main point, which I can’t emphasise enough, is to say how much I valued the parent tour. This was partly because the things I found out about the school were exceptionally impressive – which obviously makes a huge difference to us as parents – but it was also simply because of the fact that you wished to engage with parents in this way. Thank you!”
(Current parent)


“We would like to thank you and hope you can pass on our thanks to your team at Trinity who took the children Skiing last week.

X had an incredible week and we are grateful for all you did to make this such an enjoyable and worthwhile trip.”
