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

SEN provision at Cardiff High School is in line with the SEN code of practice and the LEA guidance criteria. Pupils receive a staged approach to help meet their needs which includes a literacy intervention programme, paired learning with Year 12 students and extra literacy and numeracy sessions. A key element of the provision involves learning support assistants who are able to offer in-class support for a variety of lessons in years 7 & 8. The learning support department prides itself on its open-door policy for pupils and teaching staff. There is also close liaison with parents and pastoral staff. The learning support area is available for any pupil at lunchtime with homework and computer clubs. After school sessions are available. Option subjects are offered in years 9, 10 and 11 and these are very popular. At present there are 88 pupils following the learning skills option in year 9 and 65 in Learning Support in KS4. The Cardiff LEA Specific Learning Difficulties Resource Base for 12 Statemented dyslexic pupils is housed in Cardiff High School. More information on this provision is available from Cardiff LEA or the School.
