You should write at least 150 words.

model answer:

Dear Principal,

I am writing to ask you if there is a place in your school for my son, Ryan Larkin. Ryan is in Form 9 at his present school. He is interested in Science subjects, so we are keen to find a school with good science laboratories and teachers.

I am enclosing a copy of Ryan’s school report for last year, which shows his good marks in science and his love of sport, particularly, football. He is captain of the under 15’s team which plays near our house. He is also interested in music, and is part of his school orchestra.

Please let us know if you have an orchestra at your school. We are going to arrive at our new home in June next year, and we are looking for a house in your area. We will be happy to provide you with more information about Ryan, and we are looking forward to receiving information about your school.

I do hope you can find place at your school for a boy with Ryan’s interests.

Yours faithfully
Judy Larkin
