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.

Special Education Needs

Wennington Hall is a school where education is regarded as the foundation stone for each pupil’s future, individuals are valued for themselves and where all are expected to give their best. We believe in equality and in the equality of opportunity for all children. Wennington Hall caters, on a residential or day basis, for the needs of 70 boys of secondary age who have difficulties associated with their academic, social, emotional, and/or behavioural development. Pupils come to our school when they have been referred through one of the Lancashire Area Education Offices/SEN Assessment and Psychology Managers because it is felt, that mainstream education is inappropriate for them. We believe all children have basic rights of individuality, respect and dignity. As with any school, our chief aim is the education of the pupils in our charge, but education in a positive, secure and caring environment. The needs of the individual are paramount and, thanks to a generous pupil/teacher ratio, can be planned and catered for. Class sizes vary from 4 to 8. Each class has a qualified teacher with special needs experience and most classes also have a Special School Assistant. It is therefore possible to offer pupils more individual attention than could normally be afforded in a mainstream school and to provide programmes of study tailored to meet the particular needs of the individual. The Special School Assistants also operate a One-to-One Programme where extra help can be given for pupils to develop literacy and numeracy.
