Events & Registration

We just wanted to drop you a note in writing to express our thanks for your hard work, dedication and excellence throughout these testing times. We are under no illusions as to how difficult it has been for everyone and it has been unbelievable to see how you and all of the team have risen to the challenge with brilliance and professionalism. Thank you for everything – you have all made us so proud to have our children at Prince’s Mead.

“A huge thank you to everyone for providing such an experience and a solid positive foundation to our sons personal development. It is a wonderful school. I mentioned the magic of the school we felt when we first joined and that feeling has remained throughout. The senior school has a lot to live up to!”

We have been impressed, humbled and inspired once again by the dedication and passion shown by all the staff, especially during the COVID crisis.

The ability to provision and support the level of homeschooling delivered in such a short space of time was truly outstanding. Once again the enthusiasm and kindness of staff when dealing with the children remotely, whilst trying to balance their own personal circumstances is something they should all be proud of.

We hope you and everyone at Princes Mead get some well-earned rest over the summer period. As always if there is anything we can do to help please let us know.
