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.

Special Education Needs
The Student Support Department, led by the SENCo, is made up of 6 LSAs, 1 Youth Mentor and an Inclusion Unit Manager. The LEA's Learning Support Services have regular involvement in school. The school supports a variety of SEN, including some youngsters with physical disabilities; a lift is due to be installed at half-term (October 2005). The Student Support Team works across the whole school, supporting students in-class and in small groups, when additional help is needed. The use of 'Successmaker' - an integrated learning program which develops students' literacy and numeracy skills - is widely used in Years 7 and 8. The team has a wealth of experience, with Support Staff coming from a variety of backgrounds. A Counselling Service is available, as well as alternative curriculum packages for selected students in Years 10 and 11. The Inclusion Unit is central to the school and exists to support students whose behaviour may, on occasions, be more challenging.
