The Academy Way

Academy-favicon Back to About Us



Always seeking a better way of doing things, to keep our clients and staff happy, we carried out a survey to understand what people like about Academy and, more importantly, what we need to improve. This is what we found out:

1. Our clients are happy!

We were delighted to find that 100% of clients surveyed think we are ‘friendly, good people to work with’ and 100% said they would definitely recommend us. Our clients scored us as either Excellent or Very Good for:

  • Trust and integrity
  • Availability of individuals
  • Understanding needs
  • Simplicity of explanations
  • Communication and keeping the clients informed


Academy have always conducted themselves in a professional and efficient manner considering their Client’s interests first in achieving their agreed instruction.
