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.

Special Education Needs
Rowan has part-time learning support for girls with mild learning difficulties. The Learning Support Coordinator works with parents and teachers to ensure that appropriate provision is in place for pupils who are making inadequate progress. All girls are screened for literacy and numeracy difficulties at the end of year one. Additional support is offered, as appropriate. External formal assessment is recommended where there may be a barrier to effective learning. Tuition with a specialist tutor is available through arrangement with parents. Most individual tuition takes place during curriculum time on site and is parent funded. 10-09
