Parents' council
Role: to represent the voice of the parents within the Academy to ensure they have a say in the running of the Academy.
We are committed to a culture of rigorous self-evaluation and continuous improvement and, in order to ensure this, we actively seek the views of parents and carers through an annual survey. This survey gives the opportunity for parents to express their views on the quality of education provided and to make suggestions for further improvements.

The Parents´ Council, to which all parents/carers are automatically invited, provides a forum for the exchange of views and ideas with the Principal and a representative of the LST Executive.
