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

Bamburgh School is a special school in South Tyneside for pupils with medical conditions, physical disabilities as well as pupils who are emotionally vulnerable. The full range of national curriculum subjects are taught throughout the four key stages. The school has a commitment to inclusion and offers support to pupils currently in mainstream schools who would, without additional support from the LA, be pupils in Bamburgh School. Parents and teachers from mainstream schools are welcomed into Bamburgh to discuss relevant issues, and to exchange expertise with the staff. Medical staff, support staff and teachers are willing to share their knowledge and experience to help identify individual needs and to plan for any future educational provision. Members of Bamburgh staff are also willing to make visits to other schools for this purpose. In addition The Alnwick Unit is part of Bamburgh School and caters for children with Asperger's Syndrome or other conditions related to the higher functioning end of the autistic continuum.
