What says..

With a warm, friendly, Scottish lilt, she gives the impression of being a gentle hand on the tiller whilst also running a tight ship – an effective and impressive combination to manage in a school where expectations are high, on every level. A recent visit from the American ambassador gave a real insight into American politics, and such was the success of the Q&A session with students that the school presidents were awarded much-coveted congressional medals during the visit. Muddy boots and trainers around the place suggest sport aplenty before, during and after school...

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

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

Headteacher

Since 2013, Ms Lorna Savage (young 50s), came late into teaching following a history degree from Stirling, then working five years in industry before studying for a PGCE via the OU.

With a warm, friendly, Scottish lilt, she gives the impression of being a gentle hand on the tiller whilst also running a tight ship – an effective and impressive combination to manage in a school where expectations are high, on every level. Clear pride in student successes and achievements, plenty of cups and awards in evidence, but it’s clear from talking to parents that this is a school with a good heart too...
