What says..

One of the country’s highest performing comprehensives. The school prides itself on its extracurricular offering, but there’s little doubt that music is the jewel in the crown. The head sees uniform as a means of setting the expectation bar. ‘We’re very clear about what we say and insist that what we say is done. We aren’t repressive, but you’d be unlikely to see anyone with their shirt tails not tucked in or their ties not...

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.

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2004, Geoffrey Thompson MA MBA (Ed) FCMI (50s). Formerly head of Duchess’s Community High School in Alnwick, Northumberland. Educated at Campbell College, Belfast, then at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, where he read music. Started his teaching career at Langley Park School for Boys in Bromley, where he worked for 18 years, before moving to Norfolk as deputy head, then on to Northumberland. Though Mill Hill County has always been a school with high standards, his decade in charge has improved it significantly. ‘Having a vision and a blueprint is not my way,’ he says. ‘You have a set of principles and good judgement, you make decisions with other people and the place grows organically.’

Special Education Needs

The school has an Inclusive Learning Team, which supports students with a whole range of Special Educational Needs. The majority of additional support is offered via in-class support with limited provision outside the classroom. The school's philosophy is to provide an appropriate and inclusive learning environment in the classroom, reducing the necessity for specialist provision outside the classroom. As an Inclusion Team we address a wide range of needs covering learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties. However we do not offer a specific specialist provision. The Inclusive Learning Department is situated upstairs in a quiet part of the school providing two large classrooms, which have computers, linked to the school curriculum network. The department is open from 8.00am to 4.30pm. 10-09
