What the school says...

More included in the fees (ie fewer extras) than most schools.

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

Special Education Needs

The school is sympathetic to pupils with specific learning difficulties and there is a small Special Needs Department that provides support for a range of learning difficulties. The Department aims to help students to become effective learners, while ensuring that awareness of special needs is regularly reviewed so that teachers can meet students' needs across the curriculum. Students are intially identified through prep/primary liaison, screening tests and referrals by subject teachers and concerns expressed by parents. Following further investigation a programme of support is put into action ranging from differentiation within the classroom, to small group-work and 1-1 tuition with a specialist teacher. Progress is monitored and review sessions organised with pupils, staff and parents where appropriate. For further information you are welcome to contact the Special Needs Coordinator on 01256 860257
