thumbs_upBelow are the results of the parental satisfaction questionnaires we gave out earlier in the year at the Academic Interview day. The questions are drawn largely from the parents questionnaire that is used by Ofsted, the school inspection department of the government, when they inspect schools. We also add own questions to this list to construct our questionnaire.

The results show a very positive picture. Besides the questions shown in the table below we also asked the question "would you recommend this school to another parent", the results are shown in the first piechart. The first question of the main questionnaire, perhaps the key question, is shown in the second pie chart below.

There were 170 parental responses although not all parents answered all questions. The results for all the questions are shown in the table underneath the pie charts.

Thanks to all of those parents that completed and returned the questionnaire. The information drawn from the responses and comments will help us improve the school further.
