Some of these activities are run by senior school teachers and coaches and even sixth form students (earning D of E points), and make use of the senior school's impressive sports facilities...

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2016, Ruth Luzmore, previously deputy head of Clerkenwell Parochial CE School.


The school has one-form entry with classes numbering 30 pupils, boys and girls evenly mixed. ‘It’s quite cosy’, one parent told us. Because of admissions criteria, all the students are local Islington residents and represent a wide socio-economic mix; from children of affluent professionals to the children of immigrants and asylum-seekers in assisted housing. Looked after children and siblings are given priority, and as it is a C of E school, church attendance is also taken into consideration, with distance given lowest priority. Heavily oversubscribed.
