To Andrews Academy

A year ago I brought my son to your school from a an all boys school where his grades had dropped from 80's and 90's to the 50's. By the end of the year at Andrews Academy he was top of his class, was invited to awards evening and surprised me with 10 certificates of academic achievement.

You have nurtured his talents and kept him interested. You have brought him out of his shell and one of the things he pointed out to me was "mom there's no fighting or arguing among the students, we all just get on. It's so different from any other school." From being bullied into submission at his previous school he is now has a voice again. Your school has provided him with not only an outstanding academic platform but also an environment free from the pressures of other schools.

As an ADD child he easily gets distracted and lost in thought but the teachers keep him focused and interested which I think has been the key to him being able to achieve his outstanding results. He isn't just another number (his previous school teachers half way through the year still didn't know his name), he is acknowledged and I think this too has made a huge difference.

I would like to thank all the staff for all the efforts you have put into my son to allow him to grow and for helping him to achieve to the best of his ability.
