What says..

‘We’re quite sporty’ a pupil told us, modestly. In fact St Andrew’s, though small, is a big player.

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.
