Academic Curriculum

We encourage an open dialogue with home through regular communication. Parents receive letters, a monthly newsletter and phone calls from House teachers or Pastoral Leaders. Emergency information can be communicated via text message. Parental consultations are held for each year group and appointments with staff for meetings can be made via the school office at any time. We value feedback from parents which very often helps us identify areas for improvement.
