'Just a short note to express our thanks to the school and teachers for the way in which you have encouraged and cared for our daughter over the past five years. We know she has been very happy at Isca, we are sure that this has played a big part in her achieving the results that she has worked so hard for.' Parent of Year 11 leaver, 2014

"Very impressed with the level of teaching. The students look lovely in their uniforms. Lovely 'feel' about the school" Open Morning Visitor 2014
'It has a lovely feel to the school. The teachers take genuine interest in their pupils. There is a variety of subjects for pupils and much extra-curricular activity. Well done Isca - we look forward to being part of the school.' - Open evening visitor 2014
‘I just wanted to pass on information regarding our Sports Conference last week which Isca students attended. I have to say that all of your students behaved impeccably during the talks and the coaching sessions and it was a pleasure to have them at the conference.’ – Staff member at Bicton College
'Our son did not arrive at Isca an A* student but your work means that he now has the necessary qualifications to make whatever choices he wishes in the future. We don't think anyone can ask for more than that from a school.’ – Parent of a 2012 Leaver
'Isca is local but more importantly it’s a genuinely happy place. The staff and children sparkle. It has corrected many misconceptions about the college. I am looking forward to spreading the word about what a fabulous college you are.' - Open evening visitor
‘Thank you to yourself and all of the staff for the enormous effort they have put into helping our daughter achieve such great results. We are very proud of her and how hard she worked. You have all been an inspiration to her. Overall she enjoyed Isca enormously and although she has a good group of friends she spoke warmly of her whole year group.
All of the extra work done by staff in the outdoor pursuits, such as Duke of Edinburgh, has helped to develop her independence and confidence. There are also individual staff who put in effort and time beyond that expected and I would like you to pass on a huge thank you to them and to all the staff. I am also aware that all the support staff need thanking, such as those in the office who help the school run so that the teachers can get on with the teaching.’ – Parent of 2012 Leaver
