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.
