Our families are involved in the life of the school with our open door policy, soft start and end of the day, volunteering opportunities and in actively supporting their children's learning. We asked some of our families what they think about Hope.
"I like the non-traditional set up of Hope and the fact that the children are being developed as people, not just academically, with consideration for one another. I LOVE the Hope values!"
"There is real community here and we feel part of it. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming."
"I love Hope’s open door policy, so parents can come in and be part of the school day, see how their children are getting on and what they are learning. There are lots of opportunities for families to be involved and socialise together too."
"The thing I like best about Hope is the community that has developed here"
We have carried out a number of parent surveys. Families in Southampton have said:
"Hope is a truly unique school! It's more than just a school community ... it's a family! I would love to see Hope blessed with its own permanent home soon so they are equipped to transform the lives of more young people in the local area and beyond."
"I feel so privileged that my child can attend this school where he is so happy and has excelled in his learning."
"The school demonstrates all the positive values school's used to have but many have lost. The be kind ethos, treating every child as an individual, everyone knowing their name and extending the warmth to the families. Staff and the school as a whole do so many little things that make such a difference. We are proud to be part of the Hope family."
"This is an amazing school and I am grateful my child is part of it. Thank you!"
