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.
Special Education Needs
West Thames College in Hounslow offers a variety of programmes for learners with a wide range of special educational needs. We can accommodate learners with profound and complex needs to those with more moderate learning difficulties. We aim to provide all learners with an educational programme to enable them to leave college with skills they can use in life. There is a strong support network with double staffing in many classes. We are one of a small number of colleges offering full time provision for learners with profound and complex needs. Facilities include a fully equipped sensory room, access to outside areas to provide learners with opportunities to participate in gardening projects, kitchen areas for learners to develop cooking skills and much more. A link with Chelsea Football Club provides learners with moderate learning difficulties the opportunity to access professional coaching and take part in inter-college competitions.
