Parent Academy

Every parent wants to know how they can support their child’s learning. That’s why we set up Parent Academy.

Parent Academy

Parent Academy is a series of webinars delivered by teachers from our school and Nord Anglia Education colleagues.  It covers topics that we believe are interesting for parents. 

We’ll be expanding it over time, so keep checking back for the latest info. If there is a topic you would like us to cover, just let us know.
