What the parents say...

My daughter loved the Towers from her very first taster day in the Senior School. Her academic progress has been excellent and the teaching is of very high quality. However, she has never been put under stress or pressure to deliver more than she is individually able and the well being of each girl is always paramount. The added value shown in GCSE results is exceptional. The atmosphere is collaborative between the girls - they support and encourage each other in their academic work. There is no embarrassment in saying in class that you do not understand. Unlike many of the big independent co-eds, you are not expected to arrive confident and assertive in all areas. Here, an inner confidence is visibly gained and developed on an ongoing basis, through encouragement and building self belief by the staff. They really understand girls. My daughter has not had to deal with the peer pressure that can often occur at mixed schools. She has not felt under pressure to behave or appear in a certain way to gain the boys' approval. She is free to have fun with her friends and be herself! The staff and Sisters truly care for the pupils and have created a unique atmosphere which you can feel as you tour the school. If all you care about is climbing the parents' social ladder, the swankiest school interior design and the precise number of Astro pitches this school is not for you. However, if you want your daughter to blossom and achieve her very best....... then you may be a Towers parent.

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.
