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.

The curriculum provides equality of access and opportunity for all our students to make progress. For those few boys with additional educational needs (e.g.dyslexia, dyspraxia), monitoring and support is co-ordinated by the school's learning support team who work in close collaboration with the House system and academic departments.
