"I cannot speak highly enough of Cardiff Academy—you have an amazing place where young people can learn and grow and achieve with the full support and understanding of staff.
I wish you all the very best success in the future and thank you and the staff for your hard work with B. You have all invested in his life and he is the richer for it."
"Thank you very much indeed for all the support you and your team have given to A. over the last year. He has become confident, kind, and able to sustain interesting conversations, developing arguments etc. Even if he does not quite reach the predicted grades, (he and I are confident that he will!) the self-assurance that you have given him will remain with him for life. I just cannot thank you enough—what a transformation!"
"Hello! It’s been a very long time but I just wanted to get in touch and let you know how I was doing. I followed your advice and did an English degree in London. I am now an English teacher in a secondary school in north London! I absolutely love it and am really glad that this is the job that I ended up doing. It’s really hard work though, and it’s made me appreciate how much you all helped me when I was at the Academy. Thank you for everything !"
"May I take this opportunity of thanking everyone at The Academy for the levels of support, understanding and teaching which L. has enjoyed over the past 4 years.
Given the health difficulties from which she has suffered, I have no doubt that the environment which you have created at The Academy played a big part in her achieving the results she needed to get to a good university to study her chosen subject of English.
Once again, many thanks. Please feel free to produce this letter to Parents of any potential future students as an endorsement of what The Academy has to offer."
"Dear Dr. Wilson and Mrs Davies,
I don’t even know where to begin in telling you how grateful I am for everything both of you have done for me! I am currently in my 2nd year of studying Dentistry and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you both. I found all of the teachers in The Academy really caring, approachable and friendly throughout my 5 years. This teaching approach really increased my confidence towards my work and enabled me to work to my full potential.
I have had some of the best years of my life in The Academy and I miss it lots!!"
"We would like to thank everyone at Cardiff Academy for all the help, support and excellent teaching during the last four years, on behalf of S. and E. Their time at the college has had a huge impact on their futures."
"Its been a wonderful four years and I will always have fond memories of my time spent at the Academy!"
"We would like to thank you very much for all the support and interest that you showed A. over the past two years. There is no doubt that he would not have achieved three A levels if he had not attended your school. The most important achievement of the Academy, however, was that A. was happy for two years and that you gave him back confidence in his own ability. He is delighted to be going to UWE and we will keep you informed of his progress."
"TO EVERYONE at the Academy,
THANK YOU!! For letting me be a student here, bearing with me when I was ill, making lessons and school time enjoyable, listening to me when I had a “special “ moment (and we won’t say how often that was!!), letting me have the occasional rant , oh, and actually teaching me as as well!
I’ve had a brilliant four years and may, at some point, try to sneak my way back in!!"
