What the school says...

The Grammar School at Leeds is a selective, independent, day school for girls and boys aged 3 to 18 years. The new school is the result of a merger in September 2008 between Leeds Grammar School (founded in 1552) and Leeds Girls High School (founded in 1876). As individual schools, they have a long-established and proven pedigree in developing well-rounded, mature young men and women ready to embrace further education and to face the world as confident, caring citizens. The Junior and Senior schools are located in extensive, leafy grounds at Alwoodley Gates in north Leeds. Rose Court Nursery and Pre-Prep is housed in newly expanded premises in Headingley. ...Read more

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.
