EPortal is the schools online student data base. Parents can securely view important daily information about the progress of students. Student timetables, exam results, class comments, issues re homework, attendance and punctuality can all be viewed. Each parent has a unique log in detail and instructions which can be collected from the school . We believe that EPortal will be of a big benefit to all as we develop our IT facilities over the coming years.

Easter Newsletter

By PDLS News on 31/03/2015

Everyone agrees – Easter is a great time, long evenings, better weather (hopefully) and a nice time to take a break and relax! 

If Easter has arrived then summer cannot be too far away and that means exams and tests for everyone – so all students make sure that the last term ahead will be one aimed at achieving the best possible results in all subjects. Full attendance, a good homework and revision routine (which must be carefully monitored at home) will make for excellent results ahead.
