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

Kestrel House school is part of the Eagle House Group and opened as a day school for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Aspergers Syndrome in September 2008. Our school provides both nursery and primary education for children aged 2-11 years. Nursery aged children do not need a diagnosis but simply need to be demonstrating showing social communication difficulties. Children in the primary department need a diagnosis of ASD and a statement of special educational needs. Our unique curriculum, which combines speech and language therapy and teaching has been successfully helping children over the years in our celebrated little group nursery in Surrey and has given us a national reputation as a leader in the field of autism. Our school is growing rapidly and will eventually provide a total communication curriculum for some 65 children. Our multi disciplinary team includes three speech and language therapists and two occupational therapists
