Every day, we receive “thank yous” from members of the community. From grateful parents who are pleased that their child has received much needed support to colleagues wanting to acknowledge another staff member who has given that little bit more.

If you’d like to contribute your thanks, please send an email to thankstaff@thequestacademy.org.uk.

Here’s just a selection of what we’ve received in recent days:-

This is to say a big thank to all staff for all the fantastic work you are doing at a very challenging time, in helping our Children.

Year 7 Guardian

 

Miss Macarthy has planned all the remote learning resources for RS. The students are really enjoying the lessons and I am learning a lot too!  She even prepares the questions students might ask and gives the answers!  What a fantastic professional.

Thank you to Miss Khanan.  My daughter has been really engaged with her English this half term. As well as enjoying the content, she specifically referenced how the learning week has been structured. She explained it all to me, telling me it was very well organised and talking me through how each week follows a particular pattern that she has found really useful.

Year 8 Parent

 

Thank you to Miss Serwadda for being so kind and patient with supporting my son.

Year 9 parent

I just want  to give a big shout out to all the teachers who have been and are still supporting my family through this horrible ordeal we’re all facing. Your support and effort to come out each day to educate our children is more than appreciated. My gratitude is beyond words. Mr O’Sullivan and all the staff who take the time out each week to ensure we’re doing ok, thank you all.  Please continue to do the great job you’re doing, we really appreciate your hard work, thank you so much.

Year 10 parent

To all staff!!! You’re amazing!  We are so lucky to have you caring and guiding our children.

Year 8 parent

I think you’re all doing an amazing job with keeping our kids on track to achieve and be the best they can be. The Live lessons are brilliant! The feedback you all give after work is completed is great.

Year 9 parent

I would like to thank IT for supporting the staff with our many technical questions during lockdown. A special mention to James Wareham for working tirelessly to set up hundreds of laptops so our students can access learning remotely.

Very happy with the way the staff have been throughout this entire pandemic.  Think the government need to recognise all the hard work the teachers have put in, think you all deserve a pay rise. I’m a very happy parent and so glad I chose to send my children to Quest, much love to you all and hope you all stay safe and well.
