This is a key document and outlines the key commitments that we expect from yourselves as parents, from your child as a student of the school, and our commitment as a school to you both. 

The document forms the basis of our expectations for all students and it is likely that you would be contacted by the school should your child regularly show behaviours that are not aligned with our Home School Agreement. 

Please therefore discuss the Home School Agreement with your child in the period leading up to them joining our school. We encourage you to explore the statements further with your child and discuss how they can ensure that they adhere to the principles in the Agreement.  If you have any questions regarding the agreement, please contact your child’s Head of Year in the first instance.
