Parents & Carers

At the heart of all that we do is the relationship between ourselves, students and their families. Please explore the links to find content relevant to Parents and Carers.

If the information you require is not here, please do not hesitate to contact us via our main reception.

Our partnership with parents and carers helps to steer our school improvement and we regularly consult with parents and carers to gain feedback, insight and suggestions to help our continual drive to maintain excellence.

To get involved and have your say, there are many avenues:

  • Contact your child's teachers, Head of Year or Progress Leader

  • Attend Consultation Evenings and discuss any concerns with a member of our Senior Leadership

  • Parents, staff and pupils are unanimous in their praise for the excellent pastoral care provided to pupils, which includes a strong focus on mental health and wellbeing.
  • Parents agree that the school is a safe place for their children.
  • Parents are kept informed of their child’s progress and regular reviews ensure that pupils continue to follow the best possible pathways for them.
