Lines of Communication
As a College, we endeavour to be approachable and we cherish open communication between parents and the College team. Especially through this season, we ask that you follow our regular lines of communication and direct any questions to your Home Learning Coordinator or subject teacher. This will allow us to respond to you quickly and provide better clarity around any questions you may have. Our Heads of Year are also available for support.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, 10 May. While we won’t have our usual Mother’s Day stalls for you to shop from, we have listed below some ideas for gifts you can make and activities you can do for and with your mum.

Make your mum feel so special, and show her how much you love, value and appreciate her.
