COVID-19 and Updates

Spring Term

This term all learning, for all students, will take place online. Lessons will be delivered by Microsoft Teams and following the normal timetable. The following students only should come into school:

  • Vulnerable children as identified by the school
  • Children of critical workers. We deem those in years 7 and 8 to be of the age to need supervising in school but strongly encourage older children of critical workers to continue with their studies from home giving them better access to live online lessons 

You must register your child’s attendance using this form.
If you are unsure about whether or not your child falls into one of these categories, please contact us on for confirmation, or check the categories for critical workers here.  

Covid-19 Enquiries

If any member of your household displays any of the following symptoms, they need to remain at home and arrange to have a Covid-19 test:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

At this point, everyone else in the household will also need to isolate until the result of the test is known.

Please let us know as soon as possible by using the following details:

Summer Exams 2021 – Year 11 and 13 students – Contingency Dates

The examination boards have announced a series of contingency days in the summer beyond the end of the normal exam period for those students unable to take exams as a result of testing positive for Covid-19 or having to self-isolate. During this period, any student unable to take exams during the normal timetabled slot will have to take an alternative paper in order to qualify for certification.

The dates for these exams will be between 28th June and 16th July. Please ensure that your son or daughter is available to take exams during this period should it be required.
