Dear Parent and Pupil,

I personally welcome you to London Academy. As a parent, I know that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you make for your child.

Knowing this, I understand that you put a great deal of trust in the school and its faculty and staff. It is my mission to make sure the trust is reflected in two ways. One that your child is well cared for and nurtured while at school. Secondly, that the quality of teaching and learning that is offered is up to the international standard that every parent wants for his or her child. Achieving this, is at the heart of our mission as a school.

Our pedagogical philosophy reflects current educational and best international practices. Our learning environments are suitable for all kinds of learners. Considering this, I take great pride in hiring our highly qualified faculty, providing the best technological resources, and giving your child a world education. In one sentence, I want to see happy children having serious fun while learning.

With this in mind, London Academy believes that the teacher, pupil, and parent partnership is extremely important. I welcome you to be an active member of the team. Creating this partnership is vital to the success of each pupil.

Sincerely,
