Communication

As a school, we strive to keep you informed and we value good quality communication. Communication is a three-way process and we work in partnership with our parents and students.

We send emails to our parents to share weekly updates from our Head of School as well as announcements regarding school activities or events at any given point in time. Secondary school news is also sent via email on a weekly basis.
