“Our son now sets his own goals”

“Our son now sets his own goals”

After finding out about our son’s learning disability, we started searching new schools. He was losing confidence, avoiding new relationships and challenges.
When I came to the Open Day, it wasn’t for the academic purpose, for personal development. I was fascinated by Seven Oaks’ philosophy. Educators, staff, students and family are making a beautiful harmony. Seven Oaks offers Arrowsmith programme for learning disabilities, so it was a good surprise and bonus for us. I felt the door was open for us, and made the decision to step in. Now [our son] sets his own goals and is even enjoying the challenge. Thanks to Michele, a wonderful educator, and older students in the programme helped him to settle in smoothly. Every day I think how lucky we are! We could find the best way and are growing together with Seven Oaks.
