Communication at NOA

Communicating with staff at North Oxfordshire Academy

Parents are encouraged to email their child’s tutor ( or Pastoral Leader)  if they have questions or would like to make an appointment to meet. All tutor and pastoral leader email addresses can be found below. We have a 48 hour return policy and try hard to return calls and emails within this time. If you would like to talk or meet with a subject teacher, please email your child’s tutor and they will help you to make contact.

If you have any additional questions or queries, please email and your query will be passed to the relevant member of staff. Key staff emails are listed below and if you have a specific query please email the staff member concerned.

Due to the very busy nature of the school day we ask that all appointments with teachers and leaders are scheduled in advanced. We do not see parents who arrive into school without an appointment.
