What The Good Schools Guide says..

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.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 1993, Mrs Nitsa Sergides OBE (awarded in 2012 for services to education), 60s. Qualified as a teacher in 1973, followed by 19 years of teaching at another local school. Became deputy head of Grafton Primary in 1991, and head two years later.
Cypriot born Nitsa (as everyone calls her) is the embodiment of Mediterranean warmth. Her pupils adore her, ‘lovely to all of us, talks to us like family.’ Her teachers are loyal (incredibly low turnover of staff) and parents marvel at her dedication: ‘She’s quite amazing, her enthusiasm never wanes and she genuinely wants the best for everybody.’ ‘She is truly exceptional. Apart from her incredibly nurturing side, she has a gift of being able to get hold of every resource going for the school.’
