- Take reports and letters home in good time
- Communicate fully with all staff – your subject teachers, your Form Tutor, Pastoral Officer, your Learning Manager and the Director of Sixth Form
- Make an active contribution to the wider life of the school by taking part in school service, charity events, etc.
