Reviews – What do our parents say?

We value parent feedback highly at Teesside High and we have therefore recently gathered some of our parents thoughts and reviews to share with you.

New Family Reviews

“My son absolutely loves school. We have seen a total change in him, he is so happy and more relaxed. Thank you so much. I have my happy boy back.”

“Our daughter says that the pupils have been so welcoming as well as the members of staff she has met this week. She is the happiest she has been in a very long time which is so lovely to see.”

“My daughter is happy and a much more confident child who is embracing the challenge. The difference in her has been unbelievable; she feels safe and supported and it has been more than I ever could have hoped for her.”

“Making the move to a new school in Year 9 was always a risk, however it has been the best decision we could have made.”

Year 7 Parent Reviews

The move from Year 6 to Year 7 can be a daunting one for some children; we work closely with each individual pupil to ensure their personal transition into Senior School is as smooth and seamless as possible.

We asked the parents of our 2022 Year 7 cohort for reviews on how they found the transition and how their child has settled into their new learning environment. We wanted to share with you the wonderful feedback we received to help you make the decision of why you should choose Teesside High School. 

“My son transitioned into the school almost effortlessly, which must be due to the welcoming and supportive atmosphere he’s encountered. During autumn term we’ve already seen his confidence levels improving at activities outside school, mirroring his improving confidence at school” 

The pastoral care has been exceptional. We can’t thank Mrs Connolly enough for the support we received each time we asked for help” 

“We are really pleased with our son’s transition to THS, he was definitely ready for secondary school, however I think that it was made so much easier by the transition days and the things that you did so he could meet his fellow classmates, such as the bowling event and the team building day that they had before the whole school started. It all ensured he was ready to go.” 

Moving our son to Teesside High School has been the best decision we ever made. The staff are incredibly attentive, caring and honest. I feel my son has been nurtured and has grown in confidence. Every single member of staff including the teaching, both Heads of schools and support staff are always there if needed and to provide information. I would highly recommend this school to absolutely anyone who asks.” 

“Communication has been excellent between the school and parents, the EduLink app is really useful in order to track his homework and progress and the parents’ evening was well timed to give us a benchmark as to how he is progressing. Our son is really happy at the school and it’s lovely to see him thriving there. It is just what we wanted for him.” 

“Choosing Teesside High has been absolutely the right decision for our daughter. The many carefully planned transition events meant that she had made lots of friends even before Year 7 had started, which filled us, and her, with confidence. Since joining the school, she is thriving academically, is cared for by a wonderful pastoral team, and has taken up the vast array of opportunities to extend and enhance her learning experience at THS, through things such as sport, music, trips and house events to name just a few. We couldn’t wish for a better place.” 

Nursery Reviews

“Thank you very much again for everything Miss Hall. All of your effort for the children, which incredibly is even more at Christmas, is totally amazing and it makes it such a special and magical time for them. You really are a one of a kind special teacher.”

“Myself and my partner genuinely can’t believe the change in our daughter over the last couple of weeks! Since March 2021, we’ve been trying our best to build her confidence up (she spent a lot of time buried in my shoulder!) and although we had made massive progress since then, the last couple of weeks have truly cemented that. Driving home from school today she told me that Teesside High is part of her family now – it is incredible that she feels that sense of belonging already (she definitely didn’t make me shed a tear!). I cannot tell you how grateful we are and we are so excited to see her grow over the coming months.”
