Parent of Verity Casstles

It would be remiss of me not to take this opportunity to praise the art team for everything they have done for Verity. Hannah, her teacher coaxed her out from the shadows into the spotlight, engaging with her using humour, compassion, and tenacity to bring out the very best in her – artistically, academically, and socially. She has nurtured and mentored Verity, giving her confidence and belief in herself. Thank you.

Parent of Victoria Fenner

Please pass on my thanks to all the teaching and support staff at KGV. My daughter Victoria attended for the last two years and has just received excellent exam results. We are so pleased she came to you at 16, she has thrived in your environment and learned how to work independently, with the support of her excellent teaching and pastoral staff. Thank you all so much!

Parent of Katie Edward

Thank you to all of the staff at KGV who worked extra hard this year to support the A Level students. We are so appreciative of all that you have done.

Parent of Jess Morgan

It’s been a very exceptional two years but throughout the time KGV has been really supportive… and now Jess has achieved her dream of going to do veterinary medicine, which is fantastic.
