Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2016 Delphine Gentil. A former student of the École Normale Supérieure, she spent eight years as head of Brigueuil's school in Charente.

The école is under the auspices of the AEFE (French Agency for the French Education Abroad, run by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs), which oversees a network of French curriculum schools around the world, and appoints the directors of all its schools. The northern European ones meet regularly, and they are are generally rotated every five years.


Most children start in September, although as the community is an international one there is occasional movement during the school year. The cut-off date for birthdays is December, so those accustomed to September birthday deadlines may be surprised to find there are some younger peers in the class.
