School day

Mobile phones 

Students can bring mobile phones to school, but they must be turned off and left in the school office on arrival in the morning and collected at the end of the day.

Should a student be found with a mobile phone during the school day, this will be confiscated. The students' parent/carer will be informed the same day.

Confiscated mobile phones (and other confiscated items) are available for collection by parents/carers during the last week of each term.


Should you wish to let us have your views at any time, please send an e-mail to and use "Feedback" as your subject.

Meeting with the Headteacher 

The “Headteacher's Surgery" is held on Monday evenings between 16.00 and 18.00.  Twenty minute slots are available by appointment only and should be arranged with the Headteacher’s PA,  by e-mail to or by telephone to 020 8509 9446, option 4. 

Although the Headteacher is happy to meet with parents and carers, the school’s priority is to ensure that any issues are resolved with the best possible outcome.  It may therefore be more fruitful in the first instance to meet with a form tutor,  subject teacher, Student Progress Leader or the member of our Leadership Team with specific responsibility for a given area.   

When you contact the Headteacher's PA, she will ask for details of the issue you wish to discuss with the Headteacher and then make an appointment to  meet with the Headteacher or refer you to the person best placed within school to ensure the quickest and most effective resolution of your issue.
