Everyone at Pitsford knows the importance of good communication with parents.

Reporting to parents is key and every half term grades are issued. Every year parents receive a full report, an interim report and a Parents’ Evening which provides meaningful and impactful feedback.

In the Junior School, the Junior Head also has weekly drop-in sessions, and we have a very active PTA. Parents are sent two pupil reviews and one full report each year, as well as information shared during two Parents’ Evenings.

Our termly publication The Pitsford Post contains all the notable events and achievements of students within the School from that term and is sent home as a hard copy to keep and peruse at your leisure.

Parents are encouraged to contact us in person, by phone, email or letter. In addition, our parent portal Firefly allows parents to track homework, behaviour and the school calendar. Pitsford School appreciates that we are here to offer your child a first class education and so we send out Parents and Pupil Surveys on a regular basis to ensure that we are meeting your expectations.

Our termly publication The Pitsford Post contains trip write ups, student achievements and all manner of news from that term. See below for the latest version.

Bus Service

We have several bus services running across the county: Kettering via Walgrave, Market Harborough, Towcester via Mereway, East Northants via Wellingborough Rd and Kingsthorpe & Moulton.

Buses arrive at School in time for 8.40am registration and depart at 5.30pm after extra-curricular activities. We try to ensure that as many locations are covered by our bus routes as possible in order to help with transportation. The routes are run according to interest and location and current routes are amended at the start of the academic year, as pupils’ requirements change. They are also planned to ensure that collection and deposit points are located in convenient and safe places for your child. Other bus routes will be considered if numbers permit.

For more information on where our bus collection / drop off points are, please call the School Office on 01604 880306.
