Parents in the Prep will have been booking in times to speak to teaching staff about the academic progress their boys have been making this term. These meetings are always important from our angle. Being able to pass on to parents our views of what the boys are doing well, alongside highlighting any areas that might need that little bit of extra effort means, we hope, school and home are working in concert to make the most of each boy’s gifts and talents. I shall always be happy to discuss individual boys and their life and times at school with parents too. Open and honest communication is what we aim for here, as that will always, in my view, serve our pupils best.
