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 September 2016, Henry Knight, previously head of Woodcote House. BA in classical civilization (Royal Holloway), PGCE, MEd (40s). WH is the only school he has worked in previously. Joined as an English teacher there in 2003, a complete career change after running corporate hospitality for Berry Bros. ‘As part of that I set up a wine school and found I enjoyed imparting information and became sure education was what I wanted to do,’ he says. He saw an ad for a junior English teacher and house master at WH and the rest is history.
Special Education Needs
The Learning Support department at Belhaven Hill is a vibrant team headed by a full-time member of teaching staff, supported by three part-time assistants. This team allows children with wide and diverse needs to receive the support they require and deserve. We respond to individual needs and to the pattern of the children’s day. Some pupils become regular visitors to the LS “Hut” while others receive help in the classrooms, enabling them to fully access the curriculum. The “Hut” also provides a space for children to come to discuss any concerns, catch up on missed or incomplete work and practice other skills, such as typing or multiplication tables.
