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

We have very few pupils with Special Educational Needs but we do have a strong Learning Support Department whose aim is to assist any pupils needing support to fulfil their potential. All pupils are assessed on entry to the school as a means of identifying any specific learning difficulties. Any areas of concern are discussed with pupil and family, and the relevant support programme is then put in place. Nov 09
