Excellent results for a non-selective school, but no feeling of being a hothouse. Pupils are friendly and polite. Only downside - the cramped school buildings. One parent said 'I really feel grateful that my son can go to a school...
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.

Since 2000, Mr Nick Taunt. Read English at Exeter College, Oxford, head of English and the arts at Harwich School, then deputy head of Hedingham School.

Special Education Needs
A sixteen strong Learning Support team (SENCo, 4 teachers and 9 Learning Support Assistants) provide support (in-class and out), guidance and advice for pupils with additional needs and their teachers. The department's work in the school includes providing opportunities for continuing professional development to extend staff knowledge of particular syndromes and disorders, which underpins good classroom management, differentiation and pupils' learning styles. In addition we ensure all staff are aware of the needs of the pupils in our care through the Inclusion Register, The Learning Support List, Individual Education Plans and case conferences. We encourage parents to contact the department and to meet with us. We are in regular and close contact with many outside agencies. We participate fully in the 14-16 Increased Flexibility courses, part of the 14-19 Curriculum, providing opportunities for KS4 pupils to study at our local college and monitoring their progress there. Overall, the approachability of all the Learning Support team members and the full co-operation of the teaching staff means that pupils with additional needs take a full and active part in school life at Bishop Luffa.
