Alternatively, the school office is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm; you may speak to the office manager, Julia Copeland.

The office staff will be able to arrange an appointment for you at a mutually agreeable time.

Our Designated Safeguarding Team is able to help with all safeguarding and medical queries:
