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.

Special Education Needs

We pride ourselves on the quality of education we provide for our pupils and the ongoing opportunities we create to encourage and increase their independence. The school is currently part of a major re-organisation of the Special Schools in Southampton. In September 2007 we moved to a newly adapted building. In addition to the eight bright and airy classrooms, all with computers and interactive whiteboards, the school has a range of facilities including: a hydro therapy pool, art room, ICT area, food technology room, multi sensory room, soft play room and outdoor play and teaching areas. We are situated on the same site as Thornhill Primary school allowing shared events and activities to take place. The school has eight classes, mostly of mixed age groups with eight pupils on average in each class. We provide Outreach support for pupils with special needs in mainstream schools; a team of two teachers and three members of the support staff work with pupils and staff in mainstream schools on a regular basis. To be a successful school, enabling pupils to make good progress and grow as individuals, it is vital to work collaboratively with parents. We value our close links with parents and look forward to working in partnership with you and providing a rewarding and challenging education for your child. We are committed to providing a range of exciting learning opportunities relevant to every child’s needs in an environment in which every child is respected and valued.
