What says..

One parent told us about bringing their boys to the junior school after a stint abroad, fearful that their patchy education would require remedial help. But Mollie Mennie and her staff took six weeks to assess them and turn them around. 'They seemed to really “get” our children and be able to solve the situation without resorting to too much overbearing intervention. Far more subtle and sensitive than we’d expected.' Science and maths are a particularly strong suit (we're still recovering from witnessing an experiment on a Sainsbury’s sausage)...

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

That, they say, is Simon Mills to a T.

Mr Mills took over Robert Gordon’s College in 2014, after a highly successful period as the head of Lomond School in Helensburgh.
