Teachers are highly skilled in delivering the provision and in employing the school's teaching method to meet students' needs."
"Students quickly develop a high level of confidence in their spoken English and report a noticeable growth in confidence in their activities outside school"
"Relationships between staff and students and amongst the students themselves are excellent"
