I am just writing to say thank you as I am a firm believer in showing gratitude and credit when it’s due.
My son Joe started at Oxley Park in September 2013. We had only been back in the UK for two weeks having returned from living in Spain for the past 6 years. As you can imagine everything was very new to Joe, having left the UK when he was just 14 months old everything here was completely new to him, not least starting a new English school, when all he had ever known was Spanish school which is very different!
When we visited Oxley Park Academy to see if there was any possibility that there would be a place for Joe the minute we walked through the door it felt right! I can’t put my finger on what it is about Oxley Park but as soon as you enter you feel nice. Your positive visions and attitudes which you encourage the children to live by and which are shown throughout the school are exactly how we are trying to raise our children.
We were greeted with such warmth by your Receptionist and Nadine and although a place could not be promised we were assured that due to our address they would look into the matter for us. I came away with mixed emotions, on the one hand I was so pleased that Joe was on the waiting list for a school that just felt so right but I knew how disappointed I would be if a place was not available.
When we got the call from Nadine that afternoon to say that a place was available, I was literally dancing around our living room. I knew apart from anything else that although this was a completely new and sometimes daunting chapter for our little boy he would be properly looked after and that his introduction into school in the UK would be a fantastic one.
From his first day Joe hasn’t looked back and loves going to school. Miss Newsholme and her team have been absolutely fantastic, they are caring, approachable, helpful and always willing to listen and Joe loves going to school and has done from day one. Miss Newsholme in particular has been a key factor in helping Joe to settle and has built a fantastic relationship with him so that he feels confident and secure at all times
Thank you so much, your Academy is fantastic and I look forward to seeing the continued success of The Oxley Park Academy.
