Very happy with our school choice

4.5/ 5

Our Son moved from a different school form at age 16 and wasn’t happy about the move at first. He soon realised that the school had much to offer and in fact started to enjoy the new environment rather quickly. Pastoral care is great and we feel the that MCM has changed him positively. He’s very motivated, thriving and has a clear idea of what his talents and preferences are. We live 10’ from school, the location is great for us and the campus is impressively spacious.

Lack of teachers & resources for foreign languages.
High fees and plenty of extra cost, like uniforms, laptop, etc.
Too pricy for the average international schools nearby.
