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

Most children's needs can be met within the classroom through differentiated tasks and provision, particularly in the early stages. All children are taught in mixed ability classes apart from maths and spelling in which they are set or grouped according to their levels of achievement in the Prep Department. According to pupil needs, individual or group lessons may be offered with specialist teachers in the Learning Support Department. The SENCO manages this experienced team which offers advice, support, training and teaching within the school. The focus of the department is on early identification and positive intervention with regard to some specific learning needs and to offer a 'boost' to English skills if indicated.
