Communication with Parents
The school endeavors to keep parents fully informed of their children’s application and progress. Written reports are supplied at Christmas and Summer. Parents are welcome to visit the school by appointment to meet their son’s Subject Teachers, Class Teacher, Year Head, Deputy Principal or Principal. Parent-Teacher meetings are also arranged. A school newsletter is made available to parents.
