What The Good Schools Guide says..
When you move round the school, it does not feel like a special needs school - routines very much like in any school with students waiting outside classrooms to be let in for lessons, moving around the school chatting and laughing. Only the very small numbers in the classes and the differentiated groups give a hint of the fact that education is very much tailored to the students.
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.
All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2001, Mrs Sarah Salathiel (50s), who started as a PE teacher at Riverston 37 years ago shortly after graduating from Dartford College London, and has worked her way from the girls’ PE teacher via various roles to become head. She still teaches PE and is a force to be reckoned with as she races round the school teaching, handing out awards and running assemblies, meeting with parents and now working on the ‘Riverston Group’, since the owners of Riverston School have acquired a second school in the North of England. Her husband, Phillip, is now the deputy head and SENCc. Her personal drive and determination must be a large part of the growing success of the school, of which she is fiercely protective - there are even plans afoot to develop another school...
