" Ross Park has made a massive difference in my life; other than giving me a great education, it has taught me friendship, kindness and independence and many other good values. I am proud and happy that I went to Ross Park and I am sad to leave the school ..."

"I wanted to say how absolutely fantastic we thought Alice Can Dance was for the second year in a row. XXX loved it, as did XXX last year. She told me on the way home from the performance that she wished the day was just beginning and how it was the equal best day of her life (the other one being when she won Terrific Kid)."

" I especially would like to comment on our impression of Ross Park last year too. It was xxx's first year at school, in Transition with Imogen Harper. Miss Harper's calm, creative and quietly passionate approach to teaching our son has left such a positive influence on him, and exemplary impression upon my husband and me. Miss Harper catered to individuals' strengths and areas where students might need extra encouragement, with what we came to understand as her typically even-handed and caring, tuned-in way. We had an enriching and enjoyable year with her as our guide." Parent of student in Transiton in 2013
