Research has proven that effective communication and partnership between parents and school is a critical component in successful education. Through year 7, and into upper school, we aim to maintain smooth lines of communication.
The Head of Year and Form Tutor are parents’ main line of communication with school. Any queries or concerns can be passed to the Head of Year or Form Tutor via telephone.
We realise that Year 7 is a crucial step towards a successful secondary education. With this in mind, there are two opportunities in Year 7 to allow parents to meet with staff and discuss concerns:
In early October we host our “Year 7 Settling in Evening” this is an evening with the student’s Form Tutor. Students and parents are invited into school to discuss how transition has gone, to raise any concerns and have a face to face with tutors or the Head of Year.
Year 7 students sit internal examinations in June and this is followed by a parent’s evening in July, where parents can meet subject teachers and students prepare to move into Year 8.
