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.

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

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Head

Since September 2012, Mr David Goodhew (MA Oxon), originally a local boy who has now moved ‘back home’, living 10 minutes down the road with his French wife, Céline, and their young son. Read classics at Oxford and previously deputy head of Durham School. Spends at least one hour every day walking round the school – visits lessons for a few minutes, which both pupils and parents say sums up his ‘hands-on approach’ and ‘openness to ideas for change’.
