- feedback header 2016
February 2017 - Drama production of Our Country's Good - just wanted to say - What a performance!! Fab staging, fantastic costumes, great minimalist set and I loved the music. It was quite clear that you and the cast have worked extremely hard to deliver that difficult and emotionally draining play in an appropriate and sensitive manner – they obviously gave their all and had the lines and cues well-rehearsed and under their belts - amazing that some of them were playing two parts too. You are both responsible for a huge surge in confidence - be proud.
- More than happy with Welling School.
- I am extremely impressed with what my son has achieved so far and look forward to what he will continue to achieve this year.
- Teachers listen to my son and sanction his behaviour fairly so he learns right from wrong.
- Teacher support is fantastic!

Just a quick email to say thank you very much for inviting the University of Kent to exhibit at your HE evening on the 13th October. I spoke to some of the most enthusiastic and well researched students I have encountered this year during the fair and it was very worthwhile attending.

Just wanted to say how lovely it was to hear students of Welling School enjoying their sports day. ( listening in my garden!). It's brilliant to have sports day back.
30 June 2016
Just wanted to say that I thought the science evening today was excellent and appreciate the teachers giving up their time to help us parents help our children. It was enjoyable and informative and has allowed myself to have more understanding when my child comes home and talks about his science in school. Thanks again.
Hairspray Production - February 2016 - We came to see last night's performance of Hairspray and were blown away by how amazing it was. We wanted to pass on our congratulations to you and to everyone involved. The whole cast were fantastic and they were so professional in the way they dealt with the occasional feedback or crackling with the microphones. The band were brilliant and kept the whole evening moving along. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication in bringing this talented cast together to perform such a great show. I am sure that as the week goes on the performances can only get stronger. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.
Christmas Concert - 3 December 2015
We would just like to say how impressed we were with the Christmas Concert last night, there were some very talented singers and musicians. We were very proud of our daughter for playing in front of an audience, at home she is very shy and doesn’t like to play in front of the family so this was a big night for her.Also we would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible and giving up their time to make it happen. We look forward to the next one.
Year 8 student's parent
Just a short note to say thank you very much for all your hard work and enthusiasm this year. My daughter has really enjoyed Year 8 and continued to make great progress. In addition to her studies, she had the opportunity to take part in a number of school trips this year, which she really enjoyed. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges Year 9 will bring.
You work tirelessly behind the scenes and it means a lot to know the children have a great leadership team to support them in their endeavors. Thank you for all your support and encouragement.
Mrs Manzi, Head of East Wickham School following the preview of the Music Concert on 7 July 2014 which East Wickham children were invited to:
- Thank you so much for the invite, we had a great time. You certainly have some talented musicians and great voices.
From a student's mum following the Jack Petchey Award Ceremony
- We had the privilege of attending the recent Jack Petchey Award Ceremony at the Orchard Theatre to watch our son perform with his band. Their performance was amazing and we were so pleased that he got to be part of such a big event.
Year 9 Consultation Evening 2014
After attending the school yesterday afternoon/evening, I feel I must write and let you know that we are not only absolutely delighted with the progress our daughter is making at Welling School, but we are also very pleased with the staff that teach her. They are not only totally dedicated, committed and effective but also extremely nice people.
I would also like to say that I think, under your leadership, Welling School is going from strength to strength and I sincerely hope that you will remain as the headteacher.
The Brilliant Club
I would like to thank you for giving my daughter the opportunity to take part. I feel this is a fantastic opportunity for the children, giving them access to university life and education, which will bring benefits for the future.
We are pleased that our son has been able to have this opportunity and be a part of this experience. He seems to be enjoying it and is learning a lot from it. We are happy with his involvement.
Just a quick email to let you know my daughter is really enjoying the Brilliant Club tutorials.
- My son was given the great opportunity of being given a place in " the brilliant club". He has really enjoyed his weekly tutorials and has said that he has learnt lots. I think the work has been extremely challenging but I'm amazed that my son has given it everything and doesn't seem phased by it at all. He has taken in everything that he has been taught and I am very proud of him. Thank you very much for giving him this opportunity. It is such a good idea for the pupils.
Show My Homework
The new function "Show My Homework" looks great.
Just wanted to let you know that I think this facility is absolutely fantastic. Not only does it serve as a check that the children have noted all their homework in their planners, it allows parents to 'encourage' their children to complete the work on time and then see the grades obtained. Brilliant!
Year 7 Portrait Exhibition
Dear Mr Ward and Mr Greenwood, thank you so much for putting on the Year 7 Portrait Exhibition. It was a pleasure to see the interesting work produced by the year 7 students. It was also great to see so many of the teaching staff there, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. My daughter was keen for me to attend and I am glad I the opportunity.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your letter that you sent home. It is so nice to hear praise when your child has done well....instead of only hearing negatives. Your letter actually brought tears to my eyes as it was so lovely to hear such nice comments .....thank you. And yes, I am very proud of my daughter indeed!
I felt I had to inform you of how well behaved your students are both before and after school. They are all very polite, courteous and nearly all of them say a friendly "Morning" or "Afternoon". You should be very proud of them all. Well done.
- We are very happy with our child’s progress within the school and can’t think of anything that could improve the school at this stage.
- Keep up the good work.
- Really happy with Welling School and my child is achieving her potential. Thank you!
- I’m really pleased with almost everything…
- I don’t think you could improve.
