What says..

Still sits in a pretty bucolic location more than 150 years later, next to a winding country lane surrounded by cottages, fields and hedgerows. It’s very easy to imagine how this typical village school might have looked in Victorian times. Although classroom atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly, children appear busy, engaged and enthusiastic – even at the tail end of a science lesson just before the lunch bell. Teachers take the lead in pointing out unacceptable behaviour (we observed a reception teacher doing just that) but no child is ever made to feel the black sheep...

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2012, Mrs Katy Pinchess (40s); began her career as a buyer of children’s books for Waterstones before settling on teaching (her mother was a head teacher, so it’s in the blood). Experience includes setting up CET Primary School Westminster, a free school in central London. Returned to Hampshire and joined Bentley C of E after a stint as head mistress of Bordon Infants. Keen to build on 20-year legacy of previous head Phil Callaway, who transformed Bentley from two-room village school into highly sought-after primary through personal dedication and judicious financial management. Parents seem confident that she has stepped into his rather large shoes and say, ‘Everyone’s really pleased, she’s a lovely person.’ Energetic and hands on, she is married with two young children.
