The videos you have all made, the activities you have thought of and the ability to keep the Ermitage community upbeat, happy and engaged as learners during this time has been amazing. My daughter has continued to be motivated to learn and keep up with her lessons and school work, despite the new way of working. This is thanks to all the efforts of your teaching team and the previous work that you have done with her to help her to grow as an individual (not just academically)."
