This email was sent into school after a trip using London Underground:

Hello There,

In these days where people are quick to criticise, I thought I’d write with some praise. 

I shared a tube train with lots of your pupils this afternoon on the Metropolitan line returning to school after visiting the Aeronautical museum. 

They were all beautifully behaved and a credit to their teachers, particularly the young ladies who, quick as a flash, gave up their seats when some older gentlemen boarded the train. 

I think they all deserve a credit or housepoint!

Best Regards,

Simon G.
