In the event that a matter is not resolved through discussion with the Form Tutor, and your child is in the Nursery to Year 4, then please address your question to Anne-Françoise Ropert, or the Assistant Head of Lower Years, Claire Weber.

In the event that a matter is not resolved through discussion with the Form Tutor, and your child is in the Years 5 to 8, then please address your query to Kathryn Sumner.

Deputy Head email@example.com
In the event of a more detailed and particular enquiry concerning the day-to-day running of the school, a pupil’s reports, timetable, subject choices or homework requirements, please contact Jon Hind.
