MRS LUNN - PARENT OF JUNIOR SOLDIER LUNN
I have never had any worries or concerns about our son's welfare whilst at the Army Foundation College (Harrogate) and have always considered he is in a happy, safe environment and well looked after. These views regarding our son's welfare become apparent when he visited home on periods of leave. Since attending the Army Foundation College our son has grown in confidence and maturity and has really enjoyed his time at the college. As a parent, I have found the staff to be approachable, communicative, more than willing to help and support us with any questions or concerns that we had during our son's time there.
