Pupils’ Comments:

“I am very grateful for my time spent at MEFT School.  I took my exams with confidence and I am very pleased with my results.”

“I really enjoy being at Saturday School because it has made my grades improve by a lot.  The other thing I like about Saturday School is that it is different to normal school because you can relax a bit and it is more of a revision class on a weekend.”

“Saturday school is worth spending your early morning.  It guides the right way by giving you challenging work which will push you and hopefully be a success for you in and outside of school.”
