What says..

A wonderful place if you’re effortlessly clever, terrific for robust characters who need to work at it. Parents of bright but sensitive stragglers, however, may care to do a bit of soul-searching before calling in the tutors...School has also created a trio of hovercraft, as you do (though no plans as yet to bring back the much missed Folkestone/Bologne route).

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


Since July 2014, Nathan Cole BA PGCE (30s), previously deputy head. Read history at Nottingham and was a postgrad at Cambridge. Began his teaching career at Saffron Walden County High and joined Wilson's in 2006, rising through the ranks to become deputy head in 2010. An expert on the history of Italian fascism, he is also a keen musician.

Academic matters

One of a handful of grammars in the area, all high achieving (comparing their results is like differentiating between shiny, perfect apples from M&S and Waitrose: look hard enough and you might find the very occasional blemish but it’s scarcely worth the effort), and the natural home of the innately clever child who is ‘looking at getting four A levels at A grade and going to a Russell Group university’, said a mother.
