Phone System Changes

If you telephone the school, please be aware that the phone system does not give an engaged tone if the line is busy. It will just sound as though it is ringing but no one is answering.

After a few rings, the call will now be redirected to another number so please hold whilst that happens. If the next number is also busy or there is no one who can take your call, you will be redirected to the main reception answer machine. Please leave us a message, even if it is just your name and number. The phones do not display the numbers that have rung so we won’t know you have tried unless you leave a message.

We have also now removed the switchboard greeting from the Lower School phone as the nursery now have their own direct number.
