What Past Students Say

Jenny "I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for welcoming Matt this year and for giving him such a positive learning experience. His path has not always been an easy one in terms of school and it has been a real pleasure to see him thriving at Northbrook, so much so that he is ready to spread his wings in September and start his degree course at Southampton Solent. Thanks for the support you gave Matt when he arrived late and also throughout the year."
