What says..

Bright and breezy teaching moves at a brisk, imaginative pace. (We watched girls create a ‘storm’ using a variety of sounds, for example, for a lesson on weather.) Girls are well behaved – leaping to their feet to chorus ‘Good Afternoon’ – but building confidence is as critical as good manners. ‘My daughter used to be very shy,’ said a parent, ‘but performing in everything from music assemblies to poetry readings has made her much more self-assured.’

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.

Other features

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2008, Louise Lawrance B Prim Ed, 40s. Mrs Lawrance grew up in South Africa, where she trained as an English specialist. Then spent five years in the state sector in Burton on Trent before taking a ‘gap’ year (‘I was in my late 20s and working every evening’), realising in the process that ‘I was really meant to be in teaching’. Returned to the UK, where she spent seven years at Gems Hampshire School in Chelsea (now the Hampshire School), the last three as head of the pre-prep. A relaxed and sympathetic presence, she continues to teach the youngest, and you have no difficulty believing that her ambition - ‘I spend my life trying to give girls the absolute best’ – is fully realised. Married, with a young son.
