What our Parents Say.....

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all staff involved with my child. Its been a long journey and we have had great support from you all... 


You should all be proud of yourselves."

From a parent whose child attended Vermont several years ago:

"You may remember my son who left Vermont some time ago. His journey was full of challenges but you gave him the ability to grow and provided him with wonderful support. 

I am writing to you as today he has attended the Itchen College event (he secured a placement there): three sessions in Psychology, Law, Government, and Politics. 

He attended the sessions independently and came back home in a positive mood. 


It is a great success and you are a part of it. 

Thank you for your work, patience, and determination. 

You are changing young people's lives."



"Its just a good school; great team of teachers and TAs and all the other adults who work in the school."


"This school has been transformational in the behaviour and attitude to learning of my child, and I cannot compliment the staff enough for the care and attention they give to their pupils."


"My daughter has clear guidelines from school of what is acceptable behaviour and how she should treat others."


"The school is very supportive and great at communicating with you. The staff are welcoming and polite. Any issue is doubt efficiently. The only issue really is that my childs behaviour has got worse since attending."



"My son couldn't cope in his mainstream school and since coming here, he has come on in leaps and bounds, both socially and academically. Thank you!"


"My Son has never been happier and now he is settled and welcomed he is learning!!! Amazing!!!"


"The school have done me and my son proud from two years ago when he started. My child is completely different and this is thanks to the school."


"Awesome learning, communication between staff and parents is excellent, lessons are good".


"The relationship between us and the school has been excellent."


"Outstanding provision, really happy about everything", [My child] is engaging in his learning; despite his morning anxiety he enjoys it. The staff are doing amazingly and communication is excellent.

Wonderful support for us all. I cannot fault it."


"The school have been excellent in their communication and understanding of the child’s needs. They have experienced and supported difficult behaviours and this is the only school that my child has been able to fully enjoy and engage. I only have the highest praise for the work done."


When I have raised a concern, I was able to talk to the teacher and it was sorted immediately. Communication between school and home is excellent"


"The school is very good and it is the first school my son has felt comfortable in. They work well with him and communicate well with me as his mum. I am very pleased with this school."


Parent Comments July 2019


"Thank you to all the staff at Vermont who have played a part in supporting [our child] this last school year.

We know it has been challenging.....but we have also seen some real positive changes in him. He has matured so much and started to accept responsibility for his actions......

.....We have massive respect for everything you do. You are making a real difference in helping children that a lot of the time have been given up on and you have to work extra hard to build them back up to believe they are worth it and stand a chance.

You are all amazing!"


"From day one, you have been a blessing to our family. Thank you for the years of love, guidance and compassion. We will NEVER forget you. But most importantly, thank you for giving [my child] a second chance." 


"To all the Vermont Superheroes!

Thank you for all that you have done for [my child]."
