Parent Consultation Groups

Class Parent-Teacher Group
The overall role of each representative is to promote a sense of community among the parents and, when necessary, to represent the views of the parents in their children’s class. The group meets every term to provide liaison between the Lower School and its parents, and provide a forum for discussion about policies, procedures and issues related to the School’s operation in this phase of it.

House Parent-Teacher Groups
Each House has at least one parent representative in the relevant year group, whose overall role is to promote a sense of community among the parents and, when necessary, to represent the views of the parents in their children’s House year group. Both groups meet every term to provide liaison between the Senior School and Prep School and their parents, and provide a forum for discussion about policies, procedures and issues related to the School’s operation in their phase of it.

Parent-Governor Group
The Parent-Governor group meets every term in advance of the Board of Governors to discuss matters related to the strategic development and direction of the School. At least one representative from the Senior House Parent Group and the Prep House Parent Group, together with at least one from the Lower School Class Parent-Group, form the Parent-Governor Group.

Other parent groups
The Food Committee and the Transport Committee meet regularly to update parents and discuss changes and improvements.
