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

The Good Schools Guide tried to contact this school however we found the phone permanently on answerphone, and although we sent emails nobody responsed. According to the schools web-site: 'Whinfell School ...provide[s] up to 52 week residential placements to boys aged 11-19 who require care, education and health support...Whinfell School offers tailored, medium to long term placements for up to ten young people presenting with a variety of learning difficulties and needs, including Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Complex Neurological Conditions, ADHD, CAHMS Assessments, and their associated challenging behaviour. Young people may also be subject to Educational Statements of Special Educational Needs and presenting with impaired reciprocal social interactions and impaired communication skills.' If you know this school do tell The Good Schools Guide about it. Questionnaire completed by The Good Schools Guide - therefore accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
