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.

What The Good Schools Guide saysStraightforward girls who are proud to be here and keen to get on and to do their bit for society. They want to do well and make their mark on the world, and it's not hard to believe that they will. Wide range of parental backgrounds, not surprising in middle-sized county town. Parents rightly assume high academic standards but also value the 'what else?' factor – year 7 parent says...
Since 2007, Mrs Jackie Cahalin BA (40s), a historian, three previous years as deputy head at LGGS, only the ninth head in the school's 100+ year history. A friendly, calm yet authoritative presence, she clearly enjoys the company of the girls, and this appears to be reciprocated.

Special Education Needs
At LGGS we aim to enable pupils with special educational needs to reach their full potential and to be included fully in the school community. Our careful monitoring of pupils enables us to identify and support pupils with specific learning difficulties. Individual Education Plans are used for target setting and provide information for staff and parents on appropriate strategies. We currently have three girls with statements in school who benefit from additional learning support in some lessons. With all our pupils, we encourage the development of positive attitudes to all aspects of learning through the provision of stimulating and challenging opportunities, on a “whole school” basis, including extra-curricular activities The very nature of a selective Grammar School means that effective provision for the very able is possible within the mainstream curriculum. Naturally the very able also benefit from key strength of the wide range of extra-curricular activities and extra subject provision, for example, GCSE Dance and Mandarin Chinese are offered after school.
