What the school says...

A school of the Woodard Corporation

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Outdoor adventure is where the school comes into its own – from adjacent River Swale, popular for canoeing and the occasional swim (hardy girls up north), wild running assault course (aptly named WOLF), and even a 160 feet bungee jump as a special treat. No wonder the girls say ‘You learn to face your fears’...

Special Education Needs

Queen Mary's is a friendly, family school and the SfL (Support for Learning) Department sees itself as the hub of that environment. Any girl can visit us at any time during her school life here for whatever difficulty for as long - or short - a time as it takes to set her back on the rails. The most common difficulties are dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's. The department has a literacy specialist, a numeracy specialist and an early years specialist and between us we cover most problems. We also run workshops for the whole school on study skills and revision techniques. 09-09
