Well, where do I start? I have nothing but positive feedback about Arc Oakbridge School.......
Every single member of staff puts their heart and soul into their work and it doesn’t feel like a school it’s like a family hence why I refer to it as the Oakbridge family.
Nothing is ever too much trouble, they have helped us as a family and helped our son through some really tough times.
My son had been out of mainstream education for over 12 months due to not being able to cope in the environment of a mainstream secondary school. This often resulted in severe anxiety which most upsettingly lead to self-harm. As you can imagine, it had a detrimental effect on the whole family.
We came across Arc Oakbridge School which was recommended to us during the EHCP process. I went to view the school first and was bemused at it being on a car park but when I walked through the doors and was greeted by Phil Petch, the Headteacher and Allyson Williams, Office Manager I thought...........WOW this is amazing.
We were eventually offered a place and the school was named on our son’s EHCP plan. Throughout the process we were kept informed and given up to date information on the process by Phil and Allyson. We felt so supported.
The whole team, from the teachers to the TA’s are amazing, they go above and beyond. Even the Site Manager builds up relationships with the children and they look up to him just like my son does.
All of the staff are all a credit to the Kedleston Group.
I really can’t speak highly enough of the school as a whole. The staff really do care and I know they will just say “it’s their job” however I think they deserve a greater recognition for how fantastic they all are. Thank you.
