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.

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

Special Education Needs

At City and Islington College we are committed to the principles of inclusive learning. We believe that by recognising, valuing and responding to differences in the ways in which students learn we can improve the quality of learning for everyone. We welcome and encourage students who, though they have achieved the entry requirements, need support in order to access their courses due to a learning difficulty or disability. It is important to note that all students need to apply early in January and those students with significant needs e.g. transport or personal care, are encouraged to make an appointment to see us in the autumn term prior to admission to discuss support issues.
