Parents and Carers

Welcome to the Parents and Carers section of our website, which aims to help you find everything you might need to support your child’s schooling, all in one central place.

Parents and Carers: Attendance and Absence

We urge all parents/carers to always report absences to our school office. This helps us to know who has attended school and who hasn’t. The procedure for reporting absences is very straight forward. When reporting absences please contact your child’s Head of Year office:

  • Year 7, 8, and 9 – 0161 446 8641
  • Year 10 and 11 – 0161 446 8644
  • Year 12 and 13 – 0161 446 8648

Please note: family holidays are not to be taken during term time.
