Parental Points of Contact
Each House has a dedicated office with a phone line and non-teaching Student Support Assistant available to answer queries.
There will be occasions when parents and other parties will wish to contact the school. To put you in touch with the most appropriate person and ensure a quick response to your enquiry, please use the contacts below. We shall endeavor to acknowledge all calls, letters or e-mails within 24 hours and respond to the enquiry within 48 hours. Should you not receive a response in that time, please alert the house office or relevant Assistant Principal.
To report a student’s absence please call our dedicated Absence line: 01353 667763
For a practical day to day or urgent response to questions about attendance, uniform, rewards and sanctions, or other logistical aspects of school life, please contact the House Student Support Assistant.
For a matter relating to a specific subject (for example queries over homework or progress), please contact the class teacher in the first instance.
For a matter relating to the well-being, general progress or behaviour of your child, please contact the tutor in the first instance.
Should you have concerns about the progress your child is making in a subject that you don’t feel can be addressed by the class teacher, please contact the subject or curriculum leader.
Should you be concerned about the tutoring or wider progress being made by your child, or you wish to discuss their well-being, safety or potential bullying, please contact the senior tutor for your child’s house.
Should you feel that your concerns or queries have not been addressed adequately, please contact the relevant Assistant Principal or senior leader for either your child’s house or the subject/area concerned.
