What says..

School described as ’vibrant’, and it was certainly buzzing on the day we visited. A real energy about the place. More academic than senior school: ‘The girls here are clever and motivated,’ said one parent. Bullying very rare.

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

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Other features

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

That’s the best preparation for these tests.’ Places occasionally available further up the school and prospective pupils are then assessed in the classroom setting. Barely a spare seat in the house.
