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

Educational provision is achived through full integration into the mainstream school. Sensitive and creative adaptation of the curriculum may be required in order to match what is taught and how it is taught to the childrens' aptitudes and abilities. This can be done by adopting appropriate teaching methods and resources which are sensitive to the expected pace of learning. Withdrawal from lessons is kept to a minimum. Each faculty area has an LSA assigned to work within that specialist subject to support statemented children. We also utilise a bungalow which has been turned into a learning centre for children who find High School difficult to access. Here a balance between practical skills and raising literacy is achieved through students engaging in projects such as gardening, cooking, carpentry, photography and community work. We strive to work towards nationally recognised qualifications such as ASDAN. Students participate in organising sailing activities, fishing trips and visits to help raise their self esteem and leadership skills. Each year we try to offer our "special" students a residential trip to an outdoor activities centre.
