What the school says...

Converted to an academy 2012.

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.

Special Education Needs

We are an inclusive school, where SEN pupils make good progress academically, and are involved fully in the extra-curricular and pastoral aspects of school life. We have an extremely successful year 6 to year 7 transition programme to ensure a smooth transfer for statemented and SA+ students and screen all year 7 girls putting appropriate strategies in place. We carefully assess and monitor all the students who are on our SEN register, making sure that we provide help that will allow them to progress academically. We also ensure that students' needs and targets are communicated to all staff and that teachers receive appropriate training in different special needs. We run various small groups that focus on literacy, numeracy and social skills and there are social skills clubs for Years 7 - 9 every lunchtime. We also offer a well staffed homework club for all SEN students from Years 7 - 13, five nights a week. We offer all possible support for GCSE and A Level exams: use of laptops, extra time provision and small rooms for the exams. We have developed specialisms in various areas of SEN provision including speech, language and communication needs, autistic spectrum disorders and Down syndrome. Dec 09.
