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

As a mainstream mixed selective grammar school our range of pupils with Special Educational Needs is limited by their need to pass the entrance examinations. In Slough we have gained a reputation for promoting inclusion for all pupils with SEN and have a proven track record of managing the needs of these young people with measurable success. We have a number of pupils with a range of physical disabilities, some of whom are wheelchair users. We will soon have a special toilet and shower facility and a physio room to ensure that we can fully meet the needs of these pupils. We also have a number of pupils with sensory impairment, some of whom are statemented. This includes both Visual Impairment and Hearing Impairment. We also have some pupils on the autistic spectrum, including a couple with Asperger's, who have varying degrees of support in the classroom. We have pupils with Specific Learning Difficulty and their needs are met with individual support and a multi-sensory approach to teaching. Special arrangements for examinations are made for pupils with SEN, where their needs indicate this to be appropriate. We have a few pupils with behavioural problems who receive support as required to enable them to access the curriculum and manage their own behaviour. We are fortunate to have access to a wide variety of professionals working as specialists in the fields mentioned above. They provide invaluable support and advice for students, their families and the school staff.
