What the school says...

One parent recently remarked that, there is a warm, friendly atmosphere from the head teacher down to the youngest pupils.

Its warm, friendly atmosphere enables children to reach their full potential, a rigorous education produces outstanding achievement and its caring ethos provides a model for learning, good citizenship and self confidence. While founded on Quaker principles, the school embraces families from all faiths and backgrounds.

A short 15 minute walk away, pupils can take advantage of its amenities including a fully equipped theatre, design and technology departments and an observatory.

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.
