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.
Special Education Needs
Sir Charles Lucas Arts College operates a team of fourteen learning support assistants who work alongside classroom teachers to support children with special needs. We are a multi floor building with no lifts and most of our teaching rooms on the first floor or above so we are unfortunately not suitable for children with serious mobility problems.
