What says..

The school’s go-getting motto is ‘We can and we will!’ and first impressions reminded us more of a private school than a state primary.

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

Years you were there

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

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2006, Mr Nick Alford BA PGCE NPQH (40s). Previously taught in Weston-super-Mare, then at schools in London for 10 years before moving to Glebe Primary.

Married to a teacher (who is deputy head at an independent school). ‘We talk a lot about education and compare notes,’ he says. Young son attends nearby state primary school. ‘I did think about him coming here,’ he told us, ‘but if he ever got picked to be in a school play or for the school football team then parents would always think it was because he was the head’s son.’

A cheerful, down-to-earth chap who admits to being a long-suffering supporter of Plymouth Argyle. His other passions are cricket and music (The Smiths and The Beatles).
