Contact With Home

Boarding is a positive, joint venture between families and school and continuous parental contact with boarders is both facilitated and encouraged.

Most boarders have their own mobile telephones. The school provides a wireless network and boarders can use school laptops and the computer rooms at weekends, allowing them to enjoy video calls with their families. Each pupil is given their own personal email address so that they can send and receive emails. The school provides e-safety training to all pupils in ICT lessons and the PSHCEE Programme.

The school maintains regular communications with parents via telephone and email, mostly through the pupils’ individual Tutor.
