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.

Entrance

Non-selective: ‘not saturated with tests on taster days,’ we were told. Takes rising 3s upwards; staff will decide on admission either into KG or nursery class (voucher system operates but those not aiming at pre-prep go to back of the queue).
