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.

Special Education Needs

The School has a full-time SENCO who works with staff in the juniors on the Early Intervention Programme as well as working one-to-one with older boys who have diagnosed needs such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.
