Lenten Term 2022
We are required to ensure that all students have a lateral flow tested on their return to school for the new term. In order to test all of our students we will be implementing a staggered start to the new term.
The arrangements for the beginning of term:
Wednesday 5th January 2022 Pupils in Year 11 , Year 10 and Year 9 will return to school, they will be called upon throughout the school day to be tested in the school Hall.
Thursday 6th January 2022 Pupils in years 7 and 8 will return to school, being tested throughout the school day, joining the other year groups.
Car Park Development
Please note that the carpark works will continue for the next few weeks. In order to avoid congestion, the staggered and to the day for those who do not get the school bus, will continue.
