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.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs
We have two specialist SEN teachers and one assistant. All three are permanent members of the school staff who attend staff meetings and take a full role within the school. Boys who need learning support are all given an IEP which is distributed to the pupil, his parents and to all staff who teach him. This is updated each term. Support can be in the form of withdrawal lessons, in class support, early morning Touch Type Read and Spell lessons or a combination of all three. We allow laptop use where necessary in class and for prep. Each year we conduct full assessments of all pupils to help to identify pupils who are struggling or who need extension work.
