Staff List

      How to contact our staff

      To contact any member of staff, use their first initial plus surname, followed by @olab.org.uk. For example, the email address for Dr Anonymous Teacher, would be ateacher@olab.org.uk.

      Where parents have concerns or questions, in the first instance they should contact their child’s Year Tutor for pastoral matters, or the relevant Head of Department for academic matters. They will then liaise with other members of staff where appropriate, including the Principal and the Senior Management Team.

      Please note that all requests for pupils to take time off school should be sent in writing to the Principal via his PA, Mrs Braley. The exception to this is medical and dental appointments, in which case attendance@olab.org.uk must also be used to notify the Receptionists and all pupils must sign out at reception and be met by a parent.  Attendance email can also be used to report pupil absences.
