What the school says...

Colfe's Preparatory is a co-educational school for boys and girls aged 3-11. The majority of our pupils continue into the Senior School at 11, although we also prepare our pupils for entry into local grammar schools.

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
