BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Excellent care and education”
AUTHOR:
This school is excellent! The staff are intelligent, caring and organised. My child had attended since 2015. I feel very well supported and my child enjoys her time at Old Palace. The attention to detail and proactive nature and nurture of the staff is highly commendable. Overall, excellent for development and highly experienced staff with wonderful facilities.
“An Outstanding School”
AUTHOR:
My daughter attends the school. The quality of teaching is excellent and has greatly improved my child's attitude towards striving to achieve the highest grade in her home-work/assessments. She is a confident child before she joined the school. Due to the opportunities given to her to be involved in different activities and student leadership role , her confidence has greatly improved. We are so please with the school !
