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 Aimee Dovbenko at

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

The team consists of:- 

  • Mr Wardle, Lead Deputy Headteacher 
  • Ms Lockhart, Assistant Headteacher, SENCO
  • Mrs Smith, Director of Attendance 
  • Mrs Goodger, Director of Welfare 
  • Mrs Branch, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Manager 
  • Mrs Dovbenko, Admissions & Transitions Co-ordinator  

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.
