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

The Special Educational Needs department at Grey Court includes a team of: a SENCO, one full time and one part time SEN teachers, three full time TA's and 4 part time TA's. The team has specialist knowledge in Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and Behaviour Management. SEN pupils in Years 7,8 and 9 follow a fully inclusive education where they may either receive support in the classroom by TA’s, or when required, work individually/ in small groups with SEN teachers. Pupils identified as needing higher levels of teacher input benefit from the smaller class size & TA support in many subjects. English classes are carefully selected using mixed ability groupings to enable peer mentoring, this has been found to encourage the less able pupil and enables the more self conscious students to take an active part in speaking and listening assignments. This has been shown as very effective and is mirrored in our excellent English GCSE results. In years 10 and 11, Grey Court offers pathways which enable pupils to achieve vocational educational qualifications along side core subject GCSE's. The programme of extended work experience has been particularly successfully in raising pupils self esteem whilst preparing them for the work place. Grey Court strives to ensure that each child maximises their potential by the development of close communication and supportive working relationships between pupils, parents and staff.
