“Being part of the British Youth Sailing Team, I had high and low moments whilst trying to juggle school with my sailing commitments. However the support from the teachers has been outstanding and I couldn’t have asked for more. The Nightingale Lectures enable you to meet new people and be comfortable within your own skin. The Sixth Form at Embley has been amazing.”

“I love this school because there are so many things to do – we cover lots of interesting topics in class and there are many sports and activities to try. All of the teachers are really caring and my friends are kind, playful and funny. I have an amazing Form Teacher who always encourages me to try new things and reach my personal targets.”

“From the first day I arrived, I was made to feel at home. The teachers and students are really supportive and I find my daily personal tutor meetings really beneficial. I’ve had experiences that I would otherwise not have had back in Italy; the school has provided plenty of opportunities to take part in different study and enrichment activities which have helped me consider my future career options.”
