 Parent/School Partnership


front page image 2.jpg 

We recognise that the partnership between Penistone Grammar School ALC and the parents/carers of its students can hold great strength.  Only with this collaboration can the school provide a truly excellent educational experience for the young people it serves.  As a result, all parents and carers of students at PGS ALC are members of our Parent Leadership Group and are welcome to attend any/all PLG meetings.

Meetings usually focus on one or two particular areas of school life.  They are an opportunity to understand more about how the school operates and provide a chance for you to contribute to identifying areas of strength and opportunities for further development, primarily through sharing your experience of being a parent at PGS with us.

To get involved either come along to one of our meetings or contact Carole Mason (Assistant Principal: Strategic Business Development) at for further information.
