Harmonize Academy 2016-17

Review Day Feedback

“It was really encouraging to hear the positive feedback from both pupils and guardians. One foster parent expressed that he was initially doubtful about sending his charge all the way from Warrington to Liverpool to attend Harmonize, when they had a school round the corner from their house. His views changed when he saw the improvement in the young person. The guardians agreed that the small size of the school and its classes, and the high level of one-to-one attention and support, made a great difference. For the first time their children actually said that they enjoyed school. This was backed up by the young people themselves.”

Dr Modupe Omideyi, Chair of Governors

 

At the end of term, parents and carers were invited to meet with the Harmonize Teaching staff to discuss their child’s progress, GCSEs, vocational qualification choices and career plans. There was also an opportunity to talk to the Chair of Governors, Dr Modupe Omideyi and Martin Flatman, Chair of the Education Committee who both thoroughly enjoyed their conversations with parents, carers, students and staff. The Principal, Stephen Daley was delighted that so many parents and carers attended and for all their positive comments. We always welcome feedback and this is what some of you had to say:
