Face Coverings

We have re-introduced the requirement for students to wear a face covering in all indoor social spaces and corridors throughout the school. This is a proactive measure at present in order to avoid a return to class bubbles, restricted practical lessons and segregated social spaces.

Covid-19 Testing

IMPORTANT: Please ensure that your child continues to test at home twice weekly on Wednesday and Sunday using the Lateral Flow Device tests they are given by their form tutors.

If you have run out of LFD tests you can collect a box from reception between 9am-3pm.

Remember to log all results on the Test Register and Government websites;
any Positive cases should be reported the school.
We need to keep working together to keep each other safe.
