Parent & Carer Council

The Parent and Carer Council of Tynecastle High School believes that successful education requires active participation between the school, the home and the community, and that mutually respectful relationships are promoted through open communication, consultation and collaboration.

We aim to work closely with the Head Teacher and teaching staff to ensure that all students study in a fully inclusive, safe and happy environment, and achieve their full potential.  We also aim to act as a forum for parents and to foster good relationships with the community.
