Coronavirus and school

The UK government announced a national lockdown from 5th January, including school closures. School is currently only open to the children of critical workers and to vulnerable children. All other students and teachers are working from home until further notice.

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, or are required to self-isolate, please check the NHS and government guidance on the steps you must take here.

We aim to keep our students and staff safe and maintain our high standards of teaching and learning and pastoral care throughout the lockdown.

Message from Will Morgan, Principal

“Thank you to every member of our school community for your support in these unprecedented times. The way we deliver education has had to adapt, but it will follow the same principles as it ever has. The values of friendship and knowledge underpin all that we do and must continue to guide us.”
