What says..

Rules and guidelines are clear and thorough, even down to expectations of behaviour in the classroom; uniforms are smartly worn, though not like guardsmen. One parent talking about a boy who had been expelled - a rare...

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

Head master

Since 2013, Mr Augustus (Gus) Lock, MA Oxon (late 30s). Educated at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School, Elstree, he read ancient and modern history at Oxford. First teaching post was at The Manchester Grammar School, thence to Merchant Taylors’ School in Northwood, where he became head of middle school and met and married Alison (a French and Italian teacher). Mr Lock then moved to Warwick School, where he served as deputy head before taking on the headship. Gus and Alison have three young children, two of whom attend Warwick Prep School.

Academic matters

It is clear that academic work is a top priority and taken seriously by most of the boys. The pace is vigorous and demanding - for pupils and staff alike - and the overall results are impressive. When we asked if there was any...

Special Education Needs

At Warwick we recognise that boys may be academically able but may need support because they have a specific learning difficulty. There are a few boys in the school who have conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's Syndrome. The school has an excellent Curriculum Support department, which is staffed by experienced, qualified, specialist teachers. Every attempt is made to consider the needs of the individual and to meet those needs, and many such boys enjoy considerable success. Subject teachers are offered guidance on how best to manage the needs of pupils with special educational needs. There is no system of in-class support, but in some cases extra provision is made, for example a dyslexic boy might have lessons to help him to develop literacy skills. There is an additional charge if extra provision is made.
