At Bootham we set our reputation on the strength of our pastoral care and maintaining the health and well-being of our pupils is extremely important to us.
Our staff work with parents and guardians and welcome active support and involvement. Good work habits, co-operation and tolerance create the happy, family atmosphere for which the School is known.
- For minor day to day matters, you should normally contact your son or daughter’s teacher. In many cases, the matter will be resolved straightaway by this means to the parents’ satisfaction. If the teacher cannot resolve the matter alone, it may be necessary for him or her to consult the Deputy Head or the Head.
- For more serious academic concerns the appropriate person will again be the Deputy Head or the Head.
- Major issues should go straight to either the Head or Deputy Head.
- Any matters concerning finance, fees and other administrative matters should go to the Bursar.
If you feel that an expression of concern has not been handled to your satisfaction, please contact the Head.
For further information on any of the above issues, please refer to our policies section
Food at Bootham is of the highest standard and our chef Tom, along with his team takes a great deal of pride and pleasure in producing mouthwatering nutritious dishes.
Special diets can be discussed with Tom; nut-allergies, wheat intolerance and gluten-free requirements can all be managed, and vegetarian options are available for all, at every meal. Celebrating good food and balanced nutrition is something Bootham takes very seriously.
All parents have an open invitation to join us for lunch at the Senior School on Saturdays and many do.
