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

We have a small number of students with mild or moderate special educational needs. Our SENCo co-ordinates our response in consultation with subject staff and year co-ordinators. We work with outside agencies and get additional support where needed from the local authority. We do not have any students with statements. Limitations due to the nature of our historic buildings make our school currently unsuitable for students with significant physical disabilities. 09-09
