What says..

The Glasgow prep they all – with good reason – fight to get into. Still holds true. Numbers a tad down this year, but huge number of pupils shoe-horned with enormous skill into tiniest site imaginable; (rector doesn't like this description: he would prefer 'restricted site'). But think...

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.

Interviews are held annually - if you don't get a place the first time round, you may be kept 'on hold' and could be accepted, so don't give up.

Special Education Needs

The High School of Glasgow Junior and Senior Schools have members of staff with appropriate training who offer Learning Support to pupils with certain identified learning difficulties. Most of these are youngsters with mild dyslexia, dysmetria (lack of coordination of movement) or dyspraxia. We do not have the wide range of resources available in a school which specialises in assisting youngsters with major learning difficulties, but the Rector and the Head Teacher of the Junior School would be pleased to explain to prospective parents what levels of support the School is able to offer. The school buildings have been adapted to provide access to youngsters with physical disabilities. 09-09
