Back To School

For more details on how we are preparing for a safe return to school this September, read our Back to School Guide.

General contact details

Please be assured that staff are contactable each day during our term times and are available to support pupils through their Online Teaching and Learning Programme.

Please could I ask for your understanding as we know that during the initial period of Online Teaching and Learning parents and students will have many questions. We have asked students to use the Chat facility in Microsoft Teams to ask questions of their teacher. However, parents are asked to use email to communicate with teachers as usual and not to interact via Teams. Please can I remind you that staff are asked to monitor emails during normal school hours. They will respond between 8.30am and 4.30pm but please understand that the volume of emails they are likely to be dealing with will be much higher than usual. If you do not receive a response immediately please do bear this in mind.

Please do contact your child’s Form Teacher if you have any general queries.

If there is an issue relating to the work itself, please contact the relevant subject teacher in the first instance.

If you have general questions regarding our academic provision, please direct these to the respective Head of School or Assistant Head.

If you have general questions regarding our pastoral provision, please direct these to your child’s Form Teacher.

If you have general questions regarding safeguarding, please direct these to Mr Lee and Mrs Jolliffe.

The Head, Miss Nijjar, can be contacted by email at

Please feel free to contact any other member of staff as you would normally do for all other school matters.
