Stevenage ESC Ofsted Report 2017:

“Regular lessons in English, mathematics and science enable pupils to make significant gains in their literacy, numeracy and scientific understanding.   Activities are linked well to everyday-life situations to make learning enjoyable, meaningful and relevant…””….pupils benefit greatly from the good teaching and intensive,one-to-one support provided for them.  Individual plans enable staff to monitor how effectively each pupil is doing against the targets set for them.”

Parent Comment:

“I strongly believe since my son has started the ESC he has completely changed his behaviour and attitude, they have not only supported him but us as a family and I couldn’t ask for better staff they are all fantastic.

Thank you.”

Email from parent of a Year 11 student:

“Thank you for calling me earlier today to confirm that my son has been offered a place at the Stevenage College to learn plumbing. I have spoken to my son and his mother and we are all in agreement that he would like to accept this place please.  I’m not sure if we will get to speak again but just in case we don’t, I just wanted to thank you and all of the staff at the ESC for all of your help with with my son’s education. To be honest, I wish he’d come to the ESC several years ago but I think when he eventually did, this was the best thing that could have happened for him.  So please pass on my thanks to your colleagues. It really is much appreciated.”

Email from Keyworkers:

Students on site have spent time making some bags for keyworkers.  These were presented to Monread Lodge, who emailed us to say:

“Lovely to meet you today when you were taking time to deliver the bags that had been made. These certainly help the staff when carrying their property around and some of our residents like them to keep their belongings in so I can assure you that they will be well received. We thank you for thinking of us and appreciate your generosity.” – Monread Lodge Nursing and Residential Home, Knebworth
