Here are some we received from parents of our graduates ...
"I cannot give enough praise and thanks for what my daughter has gained and has achieved from doing the PLC course. The course gave her a good foundation to go on to 3rd level education. It helped her to move from boarding school living to independent living. I would strongly recommend this PLC to all students"

"This was a most valuable course and, with the help of the trained teachers of the deaf in St. Mary's, it offers a huge stepping-stone onto the next milestone"

"My daughter got 7 Distinctions and 2 Merits, she was over the moon, she received her offer of her first choice of college place"

"During the nine months she had become so independent and assertive. The course taught her to "stand on her own two feet" and to use her head."
