What says..

Drop dead gorgeous modern building in stark black and white opened a few years ago - built to hold 1,700 and not currently full. Overlooks the Clyde - all singing and dancing. Big school, big bands: symphony, wind, brass, swing with samba on the cards. Choirs, and hefty trad Scottish in/output with fiddlers, Gaelic choir and pipe band. The best fabric ever, ditto fashion design. Funding available for essential (or non essential, come to that)…

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.

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.
