What says..

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.




What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2008, Mike Piercy BA (40s). Read English at Leicester; two headships prior to this one - Moor Park Prep in Ludlow and Dunhurst, Bedales Prep, where he loved the liberal ethos. Previously deputy head at Forres Sandle Manor. He teaches English to all year 5s and runs a weekly drama activity group; 'a natural teacher,' said one parent. 'He's relaxed and well in control, popular, fair and a good speaker,' said another. Skilled at managing parental expectations. 'Very approachable and personable,' said one parent, 'but he is tough when he needs to be and knows what he wants.' Another added that he is 'adept at managing high achieving parents with opinions and quietly sticks to his guns on a non-confrontational way.'
