Regent High School

parent/carer support to Enhance students' learning

We hold regular Zoom sessions designed to give parents/carers information to help you to support your child at different stages of the year and different stages of their journey through Regent High School.

Each session has a different focus, and together they form a series across the academic year.

There is no need to book; just need to click on the link and you will be admitted from the waiting room.

We share the resources from these sessions on this page after the webinars have taken place.
