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
Beacon Hill School opened in September 2004, following the amalgamation of two existing special schools; Woodacre and Knightsmead. We currently operate on the two previous sites in South Ockendon. The main site in Erriff Drive has facilities for pupils aged 3-16 years, with the post 16 Provision a short distance away on a site shared with Treetops School's new Childrens Centre. The school caters for pupils/students who have Profound and Severe Learning Difficulties and Neurological Impairment. Beacon Hill will provide a learning environment where individual needs are recognised and supported. We will ensure that all pupils are given access to a curriculum that offers opportunities to access as wide a range of experiences as possible, acknowledging that a small step for one may be a giant leap for another. We will encourage and celebrate achievement at all levels, and help pupils to reach the highest personal standards to enable them to become valued members of the community.
