Carleton High School provides parents with information to ensure they stay up to date with their child’s progress at all times. Reports are compiled regularly for all students, and we offer numerous opportunities for parents to meet with staff throughout the year.

You can book your appointment for our Parent/Carers Evenings here.


Year 7 parents meet with their child’s form tutor to discuss how they’re settling in to secondary school life in the first term.
