Good afternoon
I just wanted to pop you a quick line to say thank you.  xxx in 7xa/D5 (it all confuses me somewhat!) has always been a shy child and lacked confidence, she has never been particularly academic and homework has always been such a chore.  We relocated to Devon so she started year 7 knowing no-one so as I am sure you could imagine, it has been a big change for her. She is absolutely thriving, achieving more than we could ever have hoped for and is so keen it is just so refreshing. She has made some fabulous friends, has already achieved well over 100 achievement points and is on the school sports teams. We are chuffed to bits that we were able to access such an incredible school for her, the staff are so supportive and any slight query we have had has been dealt with so quickly we are so impressed. Miss Titmus and Mrs Hearn especially have made xxxx feel so welcome and settled, I really couldn’t have done it without them.
So thank you for everything and I hope she continues on this same successful path with you.

Dear Mr Lewis
We wanted to pass on how happy we are with the fantastic start to secondary school and first term our son,  has had at SMCC.  He has loved all the opportunities he has been given and thoroughly enjoyed his new school life, this is credit to yourself and all the staff, which we are very thankful for. The positive school ethos is one which we feel is very strong in not only celebrating great achievement, but equally the important qualities that make the whole individual such as RAK.’

Dear Mr Finney
We attended the year 7 parents’ evening on 25 January and wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we are with the progress xxx has made since September, and how impressed we were by all of the staff we met”.

 “xxx had a difficult time due to bullying in years 5 and 6, which affected her school work and made her very unhappy. She started South Molton lacking in confidence and unsure of herself and her ability. The change we have seen in her has been remarkable. She is turning back into the happy, confident and lively young person she was before. Her work is improving and she absolutely loves school.
 We are so grateful for the amazing job you are doing and cannot thank you and your staff enough”.
