Student Services

Written by Belinda Gosling on . Posted in Parent News, Promoted News

If parents have a query relating to their child please e-mail or phone Student Services and if they are unable to deal with enquiry themselves, they will make an appointment for you with the relevant person. Contact details can be found here: https://www.hdhs.org.uk/about/communities/

Should you need to drop any items at school, forgotten PE kits etc, you can leave them at the main reception and they will be collected. For security reasons you will need to buzz at the gate for entry to the school site.

Please note that Student Services is no longer accessible from the front of the building, and appointments should be made in advance.
