Initially nothing until I complained then they were good at making sure they were ok.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There is a pta but full of clicky friends who also seem to be very friendly with teachers.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Don't!!! Lots of unqualified teachers in the high school, most students have tutors which seems to be the norm and totally unacceptable if you are paying for your child's education already!!! Absolutely no concept of safeguarding and no sense of safety in the school, they do have guards but anybody could get over the perimeter fence at any time. Lots of rude disrespectful students at the school but doesn't seem to matter as long as there is money coming in!!! Very disappointing.
