The College aims to work closely with parents in order to provide the best possible education for their sons. Parents are always welcome to attend any function at the College involving their son; equally, they are always welcome to make contact with the College if there is anything they wish to discuss. Similarly, if the College is aware of any problem involving a student then it will make contact with his parents.
Parents are welcome at the College at all times. The boys belong to the family first and the school second! Given our desire to work with you as parents for the good of your son the more consultation and contact we have the better. If possible, we would ask that you not seek to see your son during class time but if there is an urgent need we will always co-operate.
One of the aims of the Confirmed as a Bedean programme for Year 9 students and their parents is to establish connections between parents and the College, and parents with sons in the same year group.
The Parent-Teacher Association aims to bring parents and teachers closer together so that they can work in unison for the good of the pupil. As well as organising major fund-raising activities the P.T.A. also provides a support network for parents and this is seen particularly in the evenings they organise for parents of Year Nines, and in the Annual Social.
Coaching/Managing Teams and Groups Most sports teams and cultural groups are coached or managed by a staff member but support and help from parents is always welcome. If you would like to be involved in this way then please make contact with the College.
