“My son is doing really well and his attendance and behaviour at college is much better. I wanted to thank everyone for the massive difference you made. You saw the best in him while he was at Bailey Street and you all do such a brilliant job. You have no idea the difference you made to me and my son.”

“I am so happy – I needed to call you to tell you that my son has just come home and said that he has had the best day ever! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.. Having seen him so unhappy for so long at his other school – thank you, thank you all”

“This school has shown my child the encouragement, respect and loyalty to his education that he so desperately needed. I’ve never been happier to have my child in a school and I’m very sad to see it come to an end. They deserve all the recognition praise and love shown for the incredible job they do everyday“

“I wanted to say thankyou to everyone for the fantastic food parcel I received this week.
It has helped me enormously and made a big difference to me and my son. I also want to thankyou for going the extra mile to get it to me – as life without a letterbox can be very tricky at times!“

“As promised, I write to confirm the results of my child’s GCSEs this summer.

She has passed all seven subjects in Art, English Language, English Literature, Maths, History and Combined Science.

She has done amazingly well and is presently attending College to study A level history, law and psychology. In addition she has a part time job.

We cannot thank you enough for the support you have given. You, and your staff, have always gone out of your way to speak with us, making us feel we have had someone to care and listen, especially when we have been through some heartbreaking times. Nothing has been too much trouble . The encouragement my child has received from all who have dealt with her, I am sure has helped motivate her studies, when other professionals failed to see past her challenging behaviour.

With many thanks from both my child and myself to Miss Lockett, Mr Cooksey, Mrs Royle and all the team, including Jim Matthews who always had the most positive words to build my child’s self esteem.

Keep up the good work believing that every child matters!”
