Your comment/review/question:
Thank you for your time and finding boarding schools in cambridge england. It would be difficult to choose a really school for quality education of a child without you. Thank you to each manager for the patience shown to us. Although we spent a lot of time on the selection of the school, it was very pleasant to communicate with you. We were very glad to recommend you to our neighbors and friends.
Dear Charles, thank you very much for your feedback. It was our pleaseure to work with you all the best!
From an early age, our daughter set herself the goal of studying at the Cambridge school. With age, her desire has not gone anywhere, which is why we turned to you. We considered boarding schools in cambridge with good living conditions, perhaps this was the main requirement - a good boarding house. After weighing all the pros and cons of several schools, we found the one that we and our daughter liked. It was difficult, but thank you for your advice and patience.
