Belinda Greer, Chief Executive Officer of ESF stated, “Our vision is for every student to be the best that they can be and we are proud of our students’ exceptional performance, in both academic and in wider achievements. Our remarkable results rely on the successful partnership with parents and on the incredible effort and support from our staff, who work tirelessly to provide our students with the best that education has to offer. However, we are not complacent and continue to strive to improve our practice to ensure ESF’s position as a world leader in learning and teaching. To continue delivering on a truly excellent education for our children, it is necessary for us in line with rising market costs to make moderate increases in fees. I have written to our parent community today to explain these increases. ESF’s promise to our parents, is that we will focus on ensuring their child achieves personal success in their learning and that they are equipped with the skills to face the future with confidence.”
