“There has not been a school my daughter has coped in and cannot believe she now enjoys and attends school. Since joining Focus 1st Academy, her mental health has improved massively and possibly even saved her life. Honestly, ill never be able to tell you or show you just how grateful we are to Andrea and the rest of the team” – Parent

“My son has been unable to attend mainstream school for 1.5yrs due to severe anxiety and depression. Since starting Focus 1st, I have seen his confidence and self-esteem grow. He feels like he has started to build friendships and that staff all fully understand him with a very nurturing environment. I feel like staff go above and beyond and are very approachable. Focus 1st has given my son the opportunity to get an education in an environment that is suited to his needs” – Parent

My daughter now (thanks to Focus) has a bright, positive and motived future ahead of her” – Parent
