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

We provide support for dyslexics between the ages of 5-18. Having an on site dyslexia tutor saves our pupils having to attend sessions out of school hours. Sessions are sympathetically organised so that pupils are not disadvantaged in curriculum subjects they may be good at. All the sessions in the Senior Department coincide with English teaching. We have Teaching Assistants who may assist within the classroom or who may offer out of class support. Our teaching assistants are highly qualified which is a definite strength. Our pupils are generally of average or above average intelligence and staff endeavour to allow them to fulfill their potential. Our expertise includes dyspraxics and visually impaired.
