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.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2008, Mrs Linda Hamilton BEd. Her roots are local – she was educated at Stretford Grammar School for Girls and then at Manchester University – but she’s also worked in Iraq, Qatar and Nigeria (her husband was an engineer in the oil industry). She set up a pre-school in Nigeria but her more recent teaching experience has been in British junior schools. Before coming to MGS she was deputy head at Altrincham Preparatory School.
Mrs Hamilton set up the MGS junior school. She led the development of the curriculum and admissions procedure and was closely involved with the design of the buildings. In 2008 it opened its doors to years 5 and 6 and, since 2011, it’s catered for years 3 and 4 as well.
