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

We provide support as follows: English: Two part-time teachers, covering a full timetable, offer support to girls during times other than their allocated English lessons. Lessons are primarily for individuals, but in just a few instances they are for pairs or small groups of girls. The Special Needs teachers liaise very closely with the teachers of English. Mathematics: one part-time Mathematics teacher offers support to individuals requiring help. Lessons are in addition to the normal allocation of Maths lessons.
