What says..

Children eased gently into school life with parents allowed to stay in the early days. Good support for the basics, too, with an informative ‘phonics workshop’ for those unfamiliar with the jargon. As well as the standard fare, there’s an arts week, art award, and involvement with a ‘working’ artist.

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.
