Thank you and goodbye until next year!

The last students have just left Port regis for the airport. What a fantastic course! And last night the End of Course Review was enjoyed by all. Many tears were shed and hugs shared.

Chris and I would like to say a big thank you to all our students for being such an excellent group of young people. We'd also like to thank parents for entrusting their children to us. And of course we'd like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful dedicated staff for all their hard work in the class room, on the sports field, in the boarding houses or putting together a diverse and interesting social programme.

It's been a spectacular Olympic success for the UK this summer and we're delighted to have shared in a small part of it. I hope that our courses this year have once again lived up to the high expectations of parents and students. Do please complete any questionnaires you receive over the next weeks so that we can know what we did well and what we can do better. Over the next few days we will also be sending our final reports and we'll provide a link to our photo and video galleries so that students can share their memories of fun, friendship and learning in Summer 2012 with family and friends.

See you in 2013!

Chris and Sarah Etchells and all the staff of English Country Schools.
