What says..

Wherever you are, great city buildings look in at you through many windows. And the river light is likewise inescapable. The building - which seemed over-warm and airless to us on a mild spring day - is wearing well. Sports and arts praised unreservedly by parents despite the trek to the school's main sports centre at Eltham.

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.

Special Education Needs

Those with milder forms of specific learning difficulties have managed well in the past. There is a full-time member of staff who offers Learning Support to boys who need it, but it should be emphasised that the School does not have extensive specialist SEN facilities. Parents are encouraged to inform us of their son's learning difficulties at the time of registration and to submit to us any relevant educational psychologists' reports so that we may take this into consideration at interview. 09-09
