What says..

Houses, most substantial and Victorian but pleasingly not too unsympathetically subdivided, are scattered in nearby leafy residential roads and strings of Ladies’ College girls walking to and fro are one of Cheltenham’s perennial sights. Sixth formers may wear navy pin-stripe trousers although to this reviewer the effect of these with regulation shirt and jumper is a curious half-bank worker, half-schoolgirl centaur.

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.
