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.

Headmaster

Since September 2013, Mr Michael Taylor BA PGCE FRGS (40s). A geographer, he came here from four years as deputy head at More House near Farnham, another good specialist school. He clearly gets on well with both parents and children. Parents say ‘boyish’, ‘deals with problems well’, ‘has a laugh with the pupils but keeps their respect’, ‘hands shaken, greeted by name, knows if they have been away.’

Previous principal, Jackie Murray, is now school's principal educational psychologist. Still a force in the land.

Special Education Needs

Fairley House School has a whole school approach to specific learning difficulties for children from 5 to 16 years. Speech and language therapy and occupational therapy are fully integrated with children's education. All teachers hold a qualification in specific learning difficulties. The school's aim is to enhance children's literacy and numeracy skills and to teach them to compensate for their specific learning difficulties so that they can return to mainstream schooling after 2 to 3 years. We aim to raise children's self esteem and confidence through nurturing children's talents and giving them a level playing field by offering them a peer group of other children with specific learning difficulties.
