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

Students who are likely to experience difficulties are identified during a liaison process with Primary Schools prior to transfer. All students are assessed on entry to the school. This information is used to devise support programmes for students who then receive individual work plans tailored to their specific needs. Individual Education Plans which set targets are regularly reviewed and are sent to parents. Fully trained Learning Support Assistants work alongside students in their regular classes. Students may also work in small groups or individually with a specialised SEN Teacher. Dyslexia assessments are undertaken if appropriate. An out of hours Homework Club is run to provide additional help. Students with emotional and behavioural difficulties are closely monitored and supported in a Behaviour Support Unit and follow programmes which reflect the latest thinking in behaviour management. Off site courses to improve team building and social skills are arranged on a regular basis.
