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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

The terraced outdoor learning zone, clinging on to the side of a small cliff, is a creative use of small piece of adjoining land.

Special Education Needs

We aim to be as inclusive as possible to a wide range of children, including those who are gifted (e.g. very able academically) and /or talented (e.g. with particular musical flair). Our 'Increasing Access' policy includes a commitment to gradual, realistic changes that will allow us to welcome an increasingly diverse cross-section of pupils. Currently, our main provision is for children with mild to moderate learning needs. A qualified learning support specialist works with teachers to help them adjust their learning and teaching techniques to meet the needs of all pupils. Those children who benefit are withdrawn from some lessons for individual support from the Learning Support co-ordinator.
