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.

It's in the genes - his grandfather headed Repton and became a bishop, his father was head of Geelong Grammar, a brother heads an international school in Belgium and other relations have run schools both here and in Australia.

Special Education Needs
Frensham Heights provides group lessons from Year 1 for those considered to have mild learning difficulties. These lessons not only offer support but enable the teacher to monitor individual progress. From Year 7 the school uses a diagnostic test to assess the learning needs of all pupils and this is then influential on how lessons are planned and how those with IEPs are managed. Frensham Heights does not have a Special Needs Unit. Our provision is managed by a Head of Learning Support working with a team of peripatetic specialist teachers who provide support on a one-to-one basis, but this is charged separately.
