I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful experience at Merit, all your staff made me feel extremely welcome and we definitely did not want to leave! Your children and staff are a credit to you and it was so lovely to see how highly they speak of you. Your lovely school gives so many opportunities to pupils and the child is definitely at the centre of everything you do, which is so great to see. Every child I spoke to said how amazing the school was and how happy they were there! There was so much positivity throughout the whole school and it made my experience truly great! Thanks again
