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.

Since September 2013, Mrs Sara Jordan, originally from Porthleven, Cornwall; studied geography and history at the University College of St Mark and St John in Plymouth, then headed back to Cornwall to teach at Penair School, Truro. After 11 years at Ivybridge Community College, she settled at Stoke Damerel Community College for the next 12 years, working as SENCo on the senior leadership team and setting up a provision for young people with autism. It was this experience that led her to taking on the role of headteacher at BGCL.
