What says..

We watched pupils arriving quietly in happy groups, greeting and being greeted by staff; we observed a tutorial group being reminded of special activities in the near future in an atmosphere of relaxed concentration and fun. Not a grade-chasing school approaching league table results as if they were the Holy Grail. We witnessed a tremendously lively girls' cricket session overseen by the captain of England’s  women’s team and met a number of youthful, forthcoming and, yes, very friendly staff. We were charmed and startled by a girl asking if we would like to see her heart...

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.

In his time he has led a department to national recognition, winning national DfE awards for contributions to the PE and sport at King’s School, Winchester. Meanwhile, he found time to play some good minor counties cricket, some semi-professional football, of which we witnessed evidence later on, and coached rugby for Hampshire and England U17s. He has been a director of sport, and gained his masters in educational leadership from Warwick University...
