Who to Contact

If you have a query or question regarding your child's transition from primary to secondary school, please in the first instance contact Claire Sherwood at

Mrs Sherwood will be able to assist you or direct you to one of the Transition team. 

The team consists of:- 

  • Mr Wardle, Deputy Headteacher
  • Mrs Baxter, Assistant Headteacher & SEND Manager
  • Mrs Branch, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Manager 
  • Mrs Goodger, Director of Welfare & Attendance

Who to contact when my child starts school

If you have a pastoral concern regarding your child, your first port of call should be to contact their Form Tutor; by email is best as it is hard to contact teaching staff via the telephone during the working day. Arrangements can then be made for a face-to-face meeting or telephone call if necessary. If your query cannot be sufficiently resolved  through your child’s Form Tutor, please contact their Head of Year. Again, email is the most effective method of initially making contact. If your query relates to a particular subject, please email the subject teacher. All of our staff email contact details can be found here.

Student First Team 

We aim to provide an all embracing service for our students, working together to develop and maintain their social, emotional, mental health and wellbeing.

The team consists of five members of staff, all of whom have a wealth of experience in their own areas of expertise. The aim is to always put students first and offer them support and guidance, as well as providing necessary support for parents and carers.  We also refer to and work with organisations who provide additional support for young people and their families when necessary.
