What The Good Schools Guide says..
Set in four acres of grounds, school feels more like a campus university than a primary school. While we were being shown round by the head we bumped into students with a teacher doing orienteering..
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.
