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.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Ofsted reported on our success in ‘Providing an environment where pupils who have moderate to severe learning or behavioural difficulties can flourish. As a result of good curricular provision and teaching, pupils make good progress, improve their behaviour and develop more positive attitudes to learning.’ The curriculum is broad and balanced and is carefully designed to meet the needs and to reflect the interests of our young people who have a wide range of complex needs. The requirements of the national curriculum are met through a range of innovative approaches aimed at raising attainment. Our success in providing an excellent service can be attributed to a team of highly qualified staff that design and manage individual pupils’ programmes, employing a non confrontational positive approach.
