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

Hillside School caters for children with a wide range of abilities between the ages of 4 and 16, all of whom have learning difficulties. Pupils have profound and multiple learning difficulties, and severe learning difficulties. In 2005 we opened a provision for pupils who have autistic spectrum disorder. We benefit from having a full-time school nurse and can cater for complex medical conditions. Support from therapeutic staff, working for the local NHS Trusts is a strength of the school. Additionally we offer a SLD Outreach Service to local mainstream schools.
