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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

One of the few schools set up to educate the deserving - rather than the rich - which still fulfils its brief. Dance - uniquely in an all-boys' school? - is hugely popular and seen as 'cool' by the coolest boys. Combining the physical with the aesthetic, it is compulsory for first three years under clearly terrific teacher and taken right through to GCSE, after which many boys continue to perform. If all state schools were as good as this the independent sector would die – fast.


Since 2015, Michael Gascoigne (40s). Deputy head since 2009, and previously head of history and head of sixth form. He is a history and politics graduate from Sheffield University and was educated at Whitgift School. Married with two children, enjoys politics, history, reading and sport.
