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.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 1999, Mr Robert (Bob) Elsey BA (50s), following 10 years at wildly successful Charters School, Ascot, as head of faculty, assistant head and deputy head. Trained as DT teacher (and still takes some classes), first post at Haydon School, Pinner where rapidly promoted to head of year before taking advisory role for Barnet education authority.

He’s ‘big hearted, community spirited, a true bloke who tries to do a lot because knows what it’s like to be at the tough end,’ says father. Even by Mr Elsey’s own standards he’s currently exceptionally busy, juggling headship here with turn-round role at Brakenhale School – now coming to an end with appointment of Mr Elsey’s number two as head there (fourth to move into top slot elsewhere).
