Parents have been asked to comment on Ripley Court anonymously after they have left. Here are just a few of the responses:
"We could not have asked for a better school. It exceeded our expectations in a lot of ways and our children saw Ripley Court as a home from home and not just somewhere they had to go."
"Every year our children have improved academically and personally. This has been through the strength of the teaching."
"We were very impressed by the staff."
"Our children loved all of their teachers and we never heard grumbles of discontent from either of them through their years at Ripley Court. They were fortunate to have been taught by teachers who were experienced and had a passion for their subjects."
"Detailed attention to the children, level of fun and the system of discipline and reward were all better than expected - in fact excellent!"
" I did not expect such a high academic standard. "
"Ripley Court exceeded any expectations we might have had when we started - four children packed off to the ambitious senior schools of our choice, and our relationship with the staff growing stronger with every year."
"We could not be more thrilled with how things turned out."
"Amazed and grateful at the improvement in my daughter's work and confidence after only two years at Ripley Court."
"We felt slightly intimidated moving from the state to the Independent sector. Ripley Court parents could not have been more normal or more welcoming."
"In an ideal world every child would go to Ripley Court.”
“My child was shy and they have now blossomed and are self-confident all thanks to the school.”
“Our child has thrived and developed.”
