I am very grateful to the large number of parents who responded at the end of last term to the ‘Parent Satisfaction Survey’. The invaluable feedback offered on a wide range of aspects of Prep School life, allows us to re-evaluate our systems, structures and priorities. Pleasingly, the overwhelming majority of the responses from parents were positive; I am grateful for your support of what we offer and what we stand for. Where results were lower than expected, action will be taken, and I look forward to sharing with you carefully considered steps to further improve. As an initial response, I am pleased to see parents appreciating the informal coffee mornings laid on this week, as we try to provide a greater number of parent focused social events.
