I have a much clearer idea of what life will be like for my daughter at Mansfield, and was left with the impression that it is supportive and caring while encouraging academic excellence. It was so helpful to meet other parents and discuss common issues, while relaxing over excellent food and wine in the marvelous Chapel. The personal touch was so evident all weekend, from the Porter giving us a guided tour of the library to the Principal and her husband speaking to as many parents as possible.'
