"I just wanted to say how impressed I was by the school tonight. What an amazing facility you now have. It looks an inspiring place for the young people to learn in and thrive. As a parent that is just wonderful. I continue to be very pleased that my 2 boys attend Three Rivers. I look forward to watching the school grow from strength to strength."

"I just wanted you to know how happy my daughter is at school and I feel so encouraged by the enormous changes the school have made. Thank you so much for all your hard work and I am really looking forward to my youngest son joining in September."
"I just wanted to say as an existing parent how proud I was to witness first-hand how your staff and pupils represented Three Rivers Academy tonight at the Open Evening. I had lots of new parents saying how impressed they were with everything they had heard and seen around the school and how well the tour guides had conducted themselves whilst answering some challenging questions. Very interesting was the number of parents who had older children with them and were questioning their current school choices, as they were looking to potentially move their children...!"
"Keep up the hard but good work."
"Three Rivers Academy students are so lucky to have such knowledgeable and dedicated teachers. I hope the students appreciate this and make the most of it."
"Transition has been amazing. [Our daughter] feels valued and settled already"

Open Evening Testimonials
"The Open Evening was professional, full of energy and instilled total confidence in the future direction of the school. Like many I have heard negative things about the school and was unsure of choosing it for our daughter. Last night gave us the information we needed, the students and staff we met were polite, knowledgeable and full of passion about learning and their new school. The new build blew us away as the facilities the school will have are phenomenal and state of the art unlike many other schools. Please pass this on to all involved as what a positive experience we had!"
"Really great open evening. Lots of parents this morning saying how impressed they were."
"We really appreciated the Open Evening. The tour was so good and interacting with your pupils was really positive. Love all the opportunities available to the children and seeing them in action."
Testimonials from the wider community
"I am currently incapacitated with a very bad neck and girls from Three Rivers Academy willingly helped me re-instate the position of my wheelie bins after this morning's refuse collection. I would not have been able to manage without their help. They are a credit to the school."
