If you are concerned (or just curious), then perhaps get go touch with your DS's form tutor or the head of year? I think WHSB used to say to write instead of phone or email, but possibly they have moved on into the 21st century by now. With SHSB I have usually been successful sending emails headed 'query for Mr / Ms X' via the general office email address.[/quote]
Thanks ToadMum. Officially, they tell you to write - unofficially, to give them a call. Which leaves me feeling too formal if I write, and too 'helicopter' if I call . . .
I will try and pluck up the courage to ask his form tutor (but will probably at least leave it until next week now - in a vain attempt not to appear too OTT about it all . . .
