Our parents are central to our educational project and working together is essential to ensure our pupils' full development. We are extremely grateful for the kind messages of support that we have been receiving from our families.
A Parent's Perspective
Thank You Words
Thank you so much for all of the effort you are making and the transparency in the information related to Covid-19 in the school. We are most grateful and it gives us much peace of mind.
I just wanted to send my congratulations for the parent meeting about mock exams. I think the presentation explained everything completely, clearly and in an interesting way, especially for those of us who don’t have older children and don’t yet fully understand how these exams and the procedure for entering University work. Please pass on my compliments to Mr Lomas and Ms Cristina.
This message at the end of the academic year is to thank you all very much for such a wonderful year. Ivana, Cathy and Llanos have looked after our little ones as if they were their own children, and we can see it in the children! They love to go to school, they have a great time and they love their teachers, whose manner with the children is excellent. We couldn’t be happier with how the year has gone. Thank you again for everything and we wish the whole team a happy summer.
I’d like to congratulate the school and especially the Pastoral Department for all of the activities organised. I believe all areas of social integration are extremely important so that our children live in a society based on respect for others.
A very special thank you to María, the school nurse, who works so incredibly hard every week to keep the COVID situation under control and look after our children’s health. Thank you so much to everyone in the Caxton team for all of your effort.
Thank you so much for the mentoring programme you have started to help pupils who need it, among them our son. Once more, Caxton is thinking and helping its students, our children. We only have words of thanks and affection for you!
Hopefully one day we families will be able to give back even a small part of what you at school give us every day. All of you: in the kitchen, transport, school cleaners, teachers, secretaries…. We have nothing but admiration for you.
We would just like to convey our gratitude to the school psychologists, Silvia Sanchis and Cristina Pérez, for their amazing video with guidelines for parents. Both my husband and I agreed completely with every point mentioned. We are truly fortunate to have such a complete school where not only students but also parents have the opportunity to be educated and work together to build the foundation for strong future adults. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Both my husband and myself are doctors and we work in hospitals where, as you know, the situation in past months has been very difficult. We’d like to thank you for the amazing work that you’re doing to protect the health of the children. We have never had a single doubt about our children’s safety at school. I think that in general the entire teaching community is showing an exemplary attitude. They have all of our support and we hope that, bit by bit, we can begin to resume our normal routines. Our best wishes, and keep it up.
We’d like to thank our son’s teachers, Ms Algaba and Ms Robleh, as well as the rest of the Baby Caxton 2 team, especially Ms Pili who have all played an integral part in looking after our child. As parents we logically question whether we are making the right decisions about our children’s education, and we have to say that thanks to the amazing work of Ms Algaba and Ms Robleh, any doubts we might have had disappeared. (…) We’d also like to congratulate the school for having such a wonderful team of professionals and thank all of them for their excellent work. Our most sincere gratitude.
We just want to thank all of the Caxton teachers and staff for welcoming K. into Secondary, and for challenging him in his subjects. He comes home every day sharing something new that he has learned, that has gotten him thinking deeply. We really appreciate the daily feedback about his progress in his subjects. We are so grateful that even despite the pandemic, he is able to go to a wonderful school where he is being challenged intellectually and given an excellent education. The Buddy programme has worked very well and he has settled in and found some very nice friends. He even loves the food at lunchtime! 🙂 We are looking forward to things getting even better once the pandemic (hopefully) is over. Thank you for delivering a great curriculum despite the challenges. Thank you for all the support and keep up the great work!
Thank you for the amazing effort absolutely every member of the school’s staff is making. Our heartfelt thanks.
Congratulations for the international food initiative in the month of March! At Caxton you are always thinking of ways to make pupils’ lives more enjoyable, and in a year like this one with so many restrictions, when the easiest thing would have been to stop these activities, you’ve kept on coming up with new alternatives. Thank you for showing our children so much affection and love.
These past months, we’ve been particularly proud to have our children at Caxton College. Absolutely everything that you are implementing seems perfect to us, from transparent information about classes or pupils who have been isolated, to restrictions regarding when pupils can be collected from school and even to timetabling and online lessons…. Thinking about all of the details that can help make our lives easier is something we will never be able to thank you enough for.
This year we’re having a new experience living in Toronto (Canada) for work reasons. I’d like to congratulate you for the incredible level of English that Caxton pupils have. It might seem obvious, since it’s a British school, but I don’t know that it’s always the case.
To evaluate the level of English of my older son, at his school in Toronto they tested him and told us that in reading, writing and comprehension, he is at the same level as a native Canadian student. (…). This is quite an achievement for Caxton College. The only area he was a little weaker in, and it was only a little bit, was speaking. This is perfectly understandable since although children are rewarded for speaking English in lessons, in Spain all of their life outside of school is in Spanish and with their friends they speak in Spanish. And the area we are least concerned about is speaking, because with the background our son has, they say that in just one month he’s completely caught up. (…)
Congratulations!! I think you’re doing an incredible job and I know how much effort is required. A million thanks for taking such good care of our children. We have always been sure that we chose the best school for Carlos, but how you have managed this situation only reinforces that feeling. Thank you again.
What a wonderful initiative the Sensory movement classes with Ms Cox are! We appreciate these kinds of activities being integrated at school, they are needed so much now more than ever. I hope they will become a permanent addition.
I would like to pass on my most sincere thanks to the school for having such professional staff such as Ms Vivanco, our son’s teacher. I know that we have only completed the first part of the school year but we are so pleased with her and we wanted to say so.
Thank you to the playground monitors for taking such good care of our child; to the dining room staff, because he’s spoken well of you so often. Thank you to the Primary Office staff, who always help me with so much kindness; thank you to the psychologists for your advice; to the clinic for looking after him so affectionately; and thank you to the transport team, especially the drivers and bus monitors who have looked after him so well all of these years. Thank you to the whole extracurricular activities team: his art teachers (his art class has been his favourite moment of the day), his German teachers (he loves you so much!), his swimming instructors (thanks to you, he went from being afraid of the water to not wanting to get out of the pool), thank you to the team who coordinate all of these activities (Bea and the rest of the team: thank you for making it all so easy). Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the summer camps: you cannot imagine how much he has enjoyed the Challenge Camp in German and Discovery Camp! He’s never wanted to go to any summer camp that wasn’t at Caxton. And he hasn’t missed a single summer there since Nursery! And of course, thank you to the coordinators, Ms Stenhouse, Mr Fraser and Ms Sayce.
