What the Pupils and Parents say

“Well done and a huge congratulations on a very successfully organised and executed event – Young Voices was great fun.  It was so lovely to see all the girls singing so energetically, dancing, holding hands and swaying to the music – it brought a tear to my eye (well lots of tears really).  I have spoken to parents outside of Newbridge about the event and it makes you realise how lucky our girls are to have teachers willing to support and encourage them in these extra-curricular events – thank you so very, very much – BRILLIANT!” (Year Three Parent)

“I just felt that I had to say anything about Year 3’s Assembly this morning. Absolutely Wonderful! Watching them all today, I saw the progression and maturity from Reception to the here and now. Well Done and thanks to you all. ” (Year Three Parent)

“Newbridge is a truly wonderful school and my daughter has enjoyed her time immensely in her three years at the school. Thank you to you and all of the staff for your wonderful support and teaching. I know that she will be very sad to leave as a pupil, and I am sad to be leaving you as a parent.” (Year Two Parent – relocating area)

“I just wanted to thank Mrs Fisher for giving such an opportunity and an amazing experience to my daughter and the other girls. I have heard the stories non-stop since her return and I could sense how much time and effort you all have put in for such a very well-organised event. My daughter has enjoyed it very much and she said, “I didn’t miss you much mummy because it was so much fun and very exciting activities.” Thank you once again for giving such sense of independence, responsibility and a grown-up feeling. Well done!” (A Year Three Parent)

“I wanted to send you a brief email to thank you, to all involved in our daughter’s moving up experience. She is fit to burst with excitement about upcoming activities in Year Three and absolutely loves moving around the school and her very own homework book and timetable – moving to ‘upper school’ has been a tremendously positive experience for her – thank you so much for making the transition seamless.” (Year Three Parent)

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the support given to our son over the past few years. He’s a confident and happy boy because of the fantastic education you all provide! We really wanted to acknowledge how amazing the staff in TOTS and Nursery are and have been in helping our son develop. He will really miss being part of Newbridge and especially his teachers. A massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts as the peace of mind that our children are happy, safe and being cared for by such amazing teachers in TOTS and Nursery is invaluable. Thank you again.” (TOTS and Nursery parent)
