Surveys

Working closely with students’ families is a crucial part of our work at the Young People’s Academy – we want to ensure that the school is doing everything it can to support and nurture our students to achieve their ambitions. Although the most recent survey has now closed, you are always welcome to contact the school to discuss any issue that you feel we need to know about. Your feedback helps us to focus on key areas for improvement and the issues that are important to you and your child.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
