The Parent Forum

The Parent Forum at Great Torrington School is a group of parents, representing parents, run by parents with the support of the school. It is an opportunity for parents to come together, share ideas, and put forward their views to the Headteacher and Governing body of the school.
The most important factors in improving schools are good teaching and strong leadership. The biggest factor influencing the success of a child is the parents. Involving parents in school life brings these two forces together to improve our school.
