Gateacre in the press

Although most days in school at the moment wouldn't be classed as normal, we had a particularly interesting day this week when the local and national media descended on us to get our opinions on the mass testing programme and the new Lateral Flow tests, that can give results in less than 20 minutes.

Students, parents and Mr. Jones our Head Teacher were interviewed for a number of different channels including, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, BBC Radio Merseyside and the Liverpool Echo. It was great to be able to debunk some myths around the testing process with students stating although it is uncomfortable for a few seconds it's definitely not as bad as you think it will be.

We are very proud to be part of this process which we hope will go someway towards helping the rest of the Country tackle the virus.
