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.

We have four specialists working in the SEN department. Pupils are normally seen by withdrawal either in one to one situations or in small groups. Support is provided primarily for pupils with dyslexia and dyscalculia but we also have experience helping boys and girls with elements of mild Aspergers and ADD/ADHD. Nov 09.
