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.

Special Education Needs

At QEGS, we have a teacher in charge of co-ordinating our response to diagnoses of SEN. We receive reports from the appropriate agencies and qualified professionals and act upon the recommendations made. Our experience suggests that pupils so identified, with the sympathetic support of highly-qualified teachers, prosper by fulfilling or even exceeding their measured potential. 09-09
