Just a quick email to let you know that [my daughter] really enjoyed summer school. She wasn't too thrilled with the idea when I signed her up but now she tells me it's the best thing I could have done! She thought the teachers were fantastic and the revision really useful. We have noticed that she is so much more confident and less nervous about the test."
