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
We contacted the school and they didn't want to make a statement. However, The Good Schools Guide writes: Melland High is a community special school catering for pupils mainly with severe learning difficulties. In addition, a number of pupils have more profound learning difficulties, including some with challenging behaviour. The school was inspected by OFSTED in 2004. They received a glowing report beginning: 'Melland High School is outstandingly effective. It is an oasis of excellence.' Adding: 'The school’s progress in improving pupils’ achievement has been outstanding since the last inspection.' Melland High holds a number of awards including Healthy Schools and Investors in People. The school, a beacon for inclusive learning, has been granted specialist school status, from September 06 with the curriculum specialism of cognition and learning. There are plans for the school to move to a new campus with Cedar Mount High School through the Building Schools for the Future campaign.
