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.

Special Education Needs
At present Hessle High caters mainly for students with mild learning difficulties. We have three full time teachers and fourteen teaching assistants working between the two sites, Heads Lane and Boothferry Road.The majority of students are integrated and so are taught in their mainstream group. We have limited withdrawal of students from lessons and this tends to be for students with a statement of need. The aim of withdrawal and in-class support is to encourage students to become independent, both in their school life and their home life. There is access to the ground floor on both school sites for the disabled in a wheelchair, via ramps, and there is disabled access to the storey above, at the Boothferry Road site, via a lift. Both sites have a disabled toilet, ramps and hand rails. With the changes in the National Curriculum we have disapplied some of our Year 10 and 11 students from French and some Science lessons. This has freed up time to allow a more vocationally based timetable. Students complete a day a week at a local training provider and follow five GCSE courses. They also follow the ASDAN Award Scheme which promotes the use of key skills.
