What says..

Children love it here – their favourite parts are the communal ones – form rooms, chapel, the millennium hall, picnics after Saturday morning lessons, BBQ night in the summer – the astounding attraction of a sausage in a bun!

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.
