Working in partnerships with parents and the local community is important to us. Collaboration with parents to ensure that every student in our care reaches their full potential is highly valued. We encourage all parents to get involved in the life of the school. The well-established Parents’ Forum offers an excellent opportunity to influence the developments at The North School.
