The school has recently moved to a new site.

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.

Special Education Needs

We have limited facilities for pupils with physical disabilities owing to the nature of the building and the extensive campus. However, we provide good curricular support for pupils with additional support needs such as dyslexia or dyspraxia and we currently have several pupils with communication disorders on the autistic spectrum. Our four special needs auxiliaries provide strong support for individual pupils according to their particular needs. We have also had excellent success with our bilingual pupils, many of whom gain qualifications in their first language.
