What The Good Schools Guide says..
Despite offering such a range of subjects and qualifications, the school is not results driven. Social and behavioural goals are equally valuable. One parent described her son's progress: 'His confidence has soared. He feels able to interact and communicate much more often and freely. He has a sense of belonging and pride in his school. He has friends for the first time. It's been an amazing change.'
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.

Since September 2016, Zoe Kirby. Joined Gretton in 2014 as deputy head and was promoted when former head Tina Harris was appointed principal. Formerly deputy head at Clare Lodge, a secure unit for girls with mental health problems, for seven years. Previously a mainstream teacher of PE and science for10 years, but has always had a pastoral role.
Caring, humorous and professional, Zoe Kirby has started to make some changes already and one of the first has been to bring in Darcy the Dachshund, a lively puppy as a therapy dog. Stressed children lower their voices, calm down and enjoy spending time with her. There is a rota for dog walking too.
