"Our daughter only began at Waddesdon during her A level studies. As a new student she was instantly welcomed and did not feel out of place at all. She absolutely loved her time and has made many friends for life. It has been one of the best decisions she has made, wanting to study with you. The help and teaching she has been given throughout her two years has been outstanding and I personally cannot thank you and your colleagues for everything you have done for her. She has grown as a student and a person and your continuing support makes me feel extremely proud. I know she will always look back on her time at Waddesdon with extreme fondness."
"I read the latest newsletter with a sense of joy and humility. To read and see so many youngsters thinking, responding, reflecting, flourishing is amazing. How lucky are these young people? How bright is their future!

"My son has grown into a wonderful young man, ready to take on the world. Without your time, care, love and determination, this would not be the case. You all have been truly amazing."
"You should be proud of your school and staff. Our children are very lucky to be able to attend Waddesdon School and we very thankful for all you have done for our children."
"I wanted to write to congratulate you on such an engaging and successful careers evening tonight. From volunteer organisations encouraging our daughter to take part in a marine conservation vacation from the age of 14, to Aberystwyth University inviting her to visit in the summer, despite her being only in Year 7. There was such enthusiasm from so many of the organisations. Unsurprisingly, our daughter has come away buzzing about the whole event. Thank you for continuing to provide so many opportunities for these young ones...it makes all the difference."
"It is such a thrill to see our son thriving at Waddesdon. He was a very insecure and misunderstood boy in his junior school. We knew in the right environment he would thrive and he has found it."
