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

In both Junior and Senior School the Learning Support Co-ordinator works with staff to ensure that teaching meets the special needs of those girls who have been identified by the educational psychologist as having dyslexia or dyspraxia. In Junior School individual EAL support and dyslexia provision is available from two specialists. In Senior School individual EAL support is available from a specialist and girls wishing to take 9 rather than 10 GCSE's receive Study Support from the Learning Support Co-ordinator. Teachers have many years' experience with gifted and talented children. The range of extra-curricular activities and the challenges inherent in the teaching and learning approach ensures gifted and talented pupils thrive.
