What the school says...

SVPS is on a fine, safe rural site where the children enjoy a full and wide-ranging curriculum, which focuses on academic achievement, developing a community with high standards and respect for themselves and others, as well as giving opportunties to succeed outside of the classroom. We have a very successful record at entry to our senior school, Sutton Valence and other independent and local grammar schools. Accolades include:'Has exceeded all expectations'; 'The caring and professional attitude of the Headmaster and his team shine!' and 'My child loves attending the school and his confidence and ability is growing continuously. Its a happy place!' ...Read more

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.
