The arrival of email over the past few years has allowed easy communications, but based on experience, here are some guidelines to enable it to be most useful:

Sensitive or important issues will benefit from direct face-to-face attention from staff. We have an ‘open door’ policy at Homefield and staff usually are available every day, at pick up, to talk to parents. We can also arrange telephone conversations or you can book in ahead to meet staff. Please see the Parent Information Handbook for a handy flow chart on who to speak to for help. Generally, it is best to start with the Form Tutor. Parents can also see for how and when we report on student progress.

Both academic and pastoral staff are busy caring for and teaching your boys, often from before 8am in the morning until after 6pm in the evening. They will check emails during work hours, when they can, and we aim to respond within 48 hours. However, please do speak to us with any urgent matters so that we can engage quickly to help you. Tel: 020 8642 0965. Our commitment to Homefield values and courtesy should always be present, no matter what the media of communication.

Please note that staff email addresses are: first initial followed by surname (For example Mr D Jones would be If you have any trouble contacting a member of staff via email then please contact for more help.
