Our School - What People Say About Us


In our school we rely on effective interpersonal connections to drive the learning opportunities. 

A small selection of feedback from students and families about our school, services and experiences:


"We have loved our DE school. The workload can be heavy but the school is really understanding and very accommodating at reducing the workload depending on your needs. The packs are easy to send/receive and our boys had a weekly video lesson with their teacher. We found libraries on our trip were great resources and a nice change of scenery for the boys from the van classroom. The school provides so many resources it's awesome!" Wanderingwebbers via FB 6th Dec 2017
