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

Like many special schools, Mowbray is changing to meeting the needs of very complex pupils; currently we are seeing a rise in admissions of ASD pupils and in particular children with Asperger's. To accommodate such children, we work in partnership with local mainstream schools, this allows pupils to access a variety of GCSE courses at those schools, with specialist staffing support. We have created a specialist ASD resource for very complex primary aged pupils, run by staff with high expertise in this area. Currently 25 per cent of our pupils have ASD. We are also seeing a rise in pupils with emotional difficulties, this affects their educational attainment, but not necessarily their cognitive abilities; their needs are enhanced through individual learning programmes, college courses and work placements. We have partnerships with the Speech and Language Resource which educates 30 primary aged pupils of whom approximately 75 per cent successfully return to mainstream education by secondary transfer. The school is in a beautiful part of the world and is resourced and equipped to a very high standard. Parents are most welcome to contact the headteacher, who will be happy to discuss our provision with you and show you around our school.
