What The Good Schools Guide says..
Children here are happy and well-nurtured and although the workload can be demanding, the innovative teaching methods and dedication of teaching staff help ensure pupils succeed. Creative displays of work throughout the school, which shares many of its facilities with the senior school, is testament to this. The pre-prep means parents can now apply for their offspring to have their entire education here, with the stunning new all-purpose building adding a keenly anticipated….
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.

Special Education Needs

All pupils are assessed on entry to the school as a means of identifying any specific learning difficulties. Any areas of concern are discussed with pupil and family, and the relevant support programme is then put in place. Nov 09
