What The Good Schools Guide says..
'Student care is exceptional,' say parents. Guided by the work and thinking of the Peto Institute in Budapest, the framework for supporting the students to do and be their best is both positive and clear. Staff 'love their job,' they tell us, turnover is low, they even volunteer for the college’s own popular summer programme. They talk about the ‘lovely young people’ in their care, understanding and acknowledging their vulnerability with an abundance of warmth, care and humour.
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.

Acting head of college
Mr Pat Cahill BA PGCE, late 40s, joined the college in 2014. Married with 'three beautiful but demanding daughters', he was born in Yorkshire but has lived in the north east for most of his life.
