As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.
Gloucester High School supports the meaningful participation of parents or caregivers in the education of their child.
Research on improving educational outcomes for students supports the cooperation of those who have the greatest influence on them, namely parents and teachers. There is unequivocal evidence that parental involvement makes a significant difference to educational achievement. When schools and parents are able to work together in constructive and meaningful ways much can be achieved.
