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.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs
The school is able to support girls with moderate learning issues such as dyslexia, mild dyscalculia and dyspraxia. The school is small and we do not have the same depth of support that a larger school might be able to offer, but there are Junior and Senior SENCos, each with a responsibility to co-ordinate the process of supporting girls with diagnoses or evident weaknesses in particular areas. The majority of girls' needs are addressed by their teachers, as the small classes afford them time to offer more help to each girl in the room. However, where a girl requires extra support, individual or group support lessons complement the classroom help.
