Directors Message July 2022

Dear Parents, Prospective Parents and Students

It is the end of another term, with holidays ahead and examination results to come. For many of you this was your first year at Belgravia and I hope you enjoyed the benefits of open and honest communication between yourselves and our dedicated experienced subject teachers. I believe that you as parents have a right to a permanently open door to communication and that you want and deserve to hear the truth. So many of you came to us disillusioned and disappointed with the education that your children were receiving elsewhere and were promised small classes and dedicated experienced teachers who care; this is exactly what you have received.
This year, whilst meeting many new parents, I have been amazed at the frustration that many of you have experienced previously. It seems that huge classes and non specialist teachers, many of whom have no experience in teaching the British National Curriculum, are commonplace elsewhere.

Additionally we have heard about over-predicted examination grades, lost curriculum time, teachers not replaced when they leave mid term, classes not covered and an inferior on-line quality of curriculum delivery. Belgravia students have not had to endure any of these basic educational errors. Many if not all of these could have been avoided by careful planning and clear management.
As we move forward post Covid, I can assure you that Belgravia will continue to offer you all top quality teaching from dedicated and experienced subject specialists within a caring and supportive educational framework.
