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.

Headteacher

Since 2011, Samantha Leir, previously deputy at the school. Her first teaching job was at Russell in 1994. From there she went to work for the local authority as a lead literacy teacher. Returned to Russell as deputy in 2003. ‘She’s always been a huge part of the school,’ said one parent.

Two sons who both attend schools in Surrey. Grew up in Wales, the only girl with four brothers, so rugby is a big part of her life. Supports the Ospreys (Swansea). Her sons and husband also play rugby. She enjoys reading, cooking and swimming.
