Scarlett, Mother of Arthur (Years 7-12 Battle Abbey School)

"My son left China alone at the age of eleven to study in the UK, same as all the mothers, I was initially full of worries and concerns, how lucky I was to meet Lu(Louisa) and it wasn’t so difficult. Lu was both the guardian and host of my son Arthur,  Arthur lived in Lu's home every day except for his winter and summer holidays back in China. She knows all of Arthur's tastes, habits, hobbies, and even personality changes as he was growing up... She gave Arthur warm companionship, like Arthur's "English mother."
