Parent's Comments

“As my son has just started at Ribblesdale and we are now just over a week into term, I felt I should e-mail you to say how delighted we are that we chose for him to attend your school.

Choosing a high school for a bright but generally quiet and shy 11 year old is quite daunting and over the summer, our son has been excited by the prospect of starting school, with a healthy amount of nerves added to the mix.

Since day 1, we have been overwhelmed at how well he has settled. He is coming home from school wanting to talk about what he has been learning (which he never has before), made a number of new friends and he already feels comfortable with all his teachers.

The transition arrangements have been more successful than we could ever have hoped for and we wanted to pass on our thanks to the school, especially everybody who is involved with the Year 7 transition. We also wish your team to know that for us, choosing Ribblesdale was a genuine choice – a choice that we made as a family and all agreed without hesitation that your school was where our son would thrive both academically and socially.

Once more, thanks for all your efforts and we look forward to working with you over the next five years.”
