  • More information
    • Good communications with our parents and community are a high priority for us at Chew Valley School.  First contacts with the school about concerns, queries and admissions are often best directed to Mrs Hilary Taylor, our Home School Liaison Officer.  She will then involve Heads of Year, Heads of Faculty, Tutors and Senior Staff as is appropriate and will try and avoid the frustrations that arise when you can't get the person that you need on the phone.
