Parent Council

Parents as partners in their children's learning

All parents and carers of Drummond Community High School students are automatically members of the Parent Council and have a say in how the school is run. We meet every couple of months and the minutes of our meetings are published on this website. We help to raise funds for the school, and also participate in the life of the school, for example by helping to organise a “Careers Speed Dating” event at which students meet people working in a variety of jobs.
Please come along to our meetings but don’t feel this commits you to regular attendance! If you can’t attend but want to raise anything, or ask about any aspect of school life, please contact the Chair Jennifer Longstaff at
