The whole performance from the programme, scenery, sound effects to costumes and the cast was just a wonderful experience. Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to Class 6
I had to keep reminding myself that you only have 25 year 6 pupils! It really was outstanding!
Thank you again for a perfect way to end the term and my time in Southwark Schools.

— Parent, Regarding Parent’s Coffee Morning

I had such a wonderful day at your school. It was really inspirational and there were a few times where I had to hold back the tears. Cathedral School is an incredible place of learning and all the teaching staff are a credit to their profession.

It is clear that you and your staff have provided your pupils with a good start in life and a strong springboard into secondary education.

— Rt Hon David Laws MP (Minister of State for Schools)

I think we have an excellent body of teachers and school leaders. The school feels like a second home to most of our children and I never hear any child say they don’t want to go to school.

— Parent Survey

Our time at Cathedral School feels like a gift and we will treasure it always.

— Parent

Our children are infinitely richer for having been students at Cathedral, and we know they will take their experiences with them wherever they go.

— Parent

We are deeply impressed with the quality of teaching at Cathedral and see first- hand the effect this has had on our children. Your staff truly feel like a team. Their energy and excitement about teaching is obvious. This has a direct impact on our children. They are excited to go to school each day and arrive home full of news about the day’s lessons.

— Parent

As an artist I am grateful for the ways that you seamlessly weave the arts into the curriculum. Whether it’s the piece of music played before collective workshop, the exploration of history through role-play or dressing up for book day I feel like my children are active participants in their education.

— Parent

We love the school. Staff are doing an incredible job.

— Parent

Great teachers who really encourage and enthuse. Also the level of discipline is outstanding and appreciated.

— Parent

I love International Evening – celebrating the children’s amazing talents and seeing the teachers have fun.

— Parent

Really proud to be part of the Cathedral School community – keep up the good work everyone!

Love that we’re a Rights Respecting School and that the children are all so aware of their Rights and Responsibilities. This is real education!
