what parents say about sheldon

"I cannot believe how quickly my daughter has settled. She absolutely loved camp and is always talking about her new friends and teachers."

"The way in which the older pupils interact with the younger ones is a credit to the ethos of the school. The prefects have been excellent in helping with a successful transition from a small primary school to a large secondary school and everyone always has a smile and a hello."

"When we looked around Sheldon I knew it would be our first choice school. So far it has exceeded expectations. Every single member of staff that my son has met (and he seems to meet a huge variety!) has been friendly and helpful. I always hear how happy and upbeat people are."

"Your sixth formers are a real credit and superb role models. I would be proud if my son leaves Sheldon with their values and standards."

My favourite teacher was Mr Girvan. It was impossible not to absolutely love English if he taught it. He was just the nicest human being and he never raised his voice at our class once and I had him for years from year 8 to year 12.
