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

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

The school uses the title Education Extra for its special needs provision, believing this does not label the relevant students. The SENCO and Flexible Learning Coordinator (also with SENCO experience) work with two other full-time teachers and a number of teaching assistants. The school has a number of young people with physical disabilities. It also has a learning support teacher and Unit for students with speech and language difficulties. Students are not withdrawn from class unless this is linked to a requirement of a statement. Students work with Teaching Assistants and their peers in the classroom. Our students in Education Extra achieve exceptional results and many of them enter the sixth form. The school became one of only four schools nationally to be designated a Special Needs Specialist School in 2007. This has provided extra resources, expertise and further national profile, 10-09
