Positive messages from parents and the community

Platinum Jubilee Service at St Margaret's, Sunday 5 June

Just to say a big thank you again to both readers from IGS - they did a super job and were a credit to the school.  It was a wonderful occasion all round. 

Best wishes.

Thank you

On this 'Thank a teacher' day I just wanted to say just that. Thank you to the very many wonderful teachers at IGS who have supported both my sons over the past 7 years. 

Working in a secondary school myself, I can appreciate the tough job it already is, without a global pandemic added in. 

I have the odd niggle but many, many more moments of happiness and gratitude because of the teaching staff (and amazing pastoral and admin staff) at IGS. 

'L' is still on his journey but being supported by a fantastic set of teachers through his GCSE courses.

Helpful and responsible pupil

My parents (now in their seventies) live on Bolling Road & I am visiting them at present.

Yesterday, my 5 month old puppy escaped their garden at the end of your school day. 'C', one of your pupils, picked him up and called my number which is on his tag.

I'm so grateful, he was wandering around, rather lost I imagine & 'C' and a passing parent aged friend of hers in a car (who was pushing) helped.

So, I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you IGS for your contributions in fostering responsibility and honest help in your students.

Thank you!

I wanted to pass on my huge thanks to everyone at IGS as 'M' finishes year 13. She genuinely has enjoyed her time at school so much and made such wonderful memories and that is all thanks to the fantastic staff who gave helped and supported her since year 7!

I am extremely grateful for all the staff who have gone that extra mile over the years, listening to her, marking extra papers, advising her, stretching her, giving her the opportunity to shine and reach her full potential.

Please pass on our thanks, I know it’s a team effort and often education is seen as a right and an expectation, however the staff who have taught her have made it a joy and a privilege ('M'’s words!)

She had mixed emotions today but I know she’s made memories for life!

Thank you again and here’s to the next chapter!
