School closure update and information

This – like the coronavirus itself – is an unprecedented situation for all of us. But our commitment to helping young people to realise their potential hasn’t changed, and never will.

Year 11

(19/03/20) Text message sent to Year 11

Year 11s will be able to have their shirts signed period 5 tomorrow. Prom has had to be cancelled but a celebratory event will be arranged in the autumn term to formally say goodbye. Several students are self-isolating and understandably won't be allowed on-site tomorrow. We know this is an upsetting time for everyone however the situation has been taken out of our hands. Best wishes Louisa and Sue
