What says..

Life here is simply buzzing and the Juniors has plenty of reasons to be proud, not least because its pupils love it here. Every parent who contacted us - and there were many - confirmed that their son was having a whale of a time.

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
