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

Ashcroft School is one of the specialist education services provided by the Together Trust. Ashcroft School is an independent special school catering for children and young people aged 5 to 18 years who have struggled to cope in other settings because of their individual barriers to learning. At Ashcroft School we pride ourselves in working with each student, offering a bespoke education package. We cater for pupils with complex emotional needs including ADHD, ASC and acquired brain injuries, working closely with local authorities to support looked after children. Ashcroft School provides 25 hours of learning per week and offers a broad and balanced curriculum adapted to reflect individual needs. We adopt a variety of methodologies, often not available in mainstream schools, to ensure we work flexibly with each young person. We have high expectations of our students and are committed to raising achievement. Our teams work flexibly to fulfil the varying curriculum and social needs of our students. We focus on ensuring our students develop lifelong learning skills which in time can lead to the successful completion of accredited courses, including GCSEs, thereby increasing their opportunity to access further education, training and employment. Ashcroft School offers students intensive personal support designed to help them re-engage in education, manage their own behaviour and develop more positive relationships with others. This is achieved through intensive learning support which is often delivered through a range of stimulating activities that motivate and engage students in ways that are not readily available in other settings. We aim to promote learning and positive emotional development through improving self-esteem and celebrating achievements. Ashcroft School also has a range of specialist programmes available to its students which include: • The Nurture Group • Play Therapy • Access Group • Vocational training for 14 – 19 year olds Further information regarding these can be found by searching ‘Ashcroft programmes’ at
