Thank the school

"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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

A peek back in time shows that some well-known former pupils like Baroness Claire Tyler (chair of CAFCASS and president of the National Children's Bureau), footballer Johnny Haynes and Sir Bruce Forsyth CBE all did well here. Pupils clearly still do. This is a zealously traditional school with pupils who show a healthy balance between hard work and play.

Special Education Needs

Latymer has a fairly low number of students with SEN and we are therefore able to make very full provision for them. The majority of our SEN students have Asperger's syndrome or specific learning difficulties. All students with SEN have a learning support plan and their progress is regularly tracked. Some students are helped by differentiation/teacher support in the classroom at school action, others work with a learning support assistant in and outside of lessons. We run supervised study sessions/groupwork sessions for children with SEN and run a literacy booster course/literacy mentor system. We have a sixth form and adult mentoring system to support students with SEN plus any others who need organisational or other support. Other students work one to one with the SENCO. We have a mental health forum run by a psychotherapist/educational psychologist and attended by heads of learning/support staff, in which we explore our provision in this area. We work closely with the Educational Psychologist. We also run a homework club and comprehensive study skills and learning styles programs with all year groups. 09-09
