What says..

Cheerful studiousness might best capture the atmosphere, students going about their business with a smile. The mix of pupils means teaching is all inclusive but differentiated, depending on stage and ability. A regular programme of school soirées (‘soirees at six’) recitals and concerts means heaps of opportunities to perform for all, including house singing competitions and house concerts. Boys can visit the girls’ common rooms for a short time after prep; one girl called their common room a ‘social hub’...

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.
