March 11th, 2020 Comments off

As a precautionary measure, we have decided to cancel any large scale non-essential events scheduled in school this week. As a result, we will be cancelling the Year 9 Curriculum Evening scheduled to take place tomorrow. There are currently no further changes planned and school will be open as usual to all students and staff.

The Curriculum Appointments planned for Year 9 families next week will still take place at the scheduled times. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your child’s options for Year 10 in more detail. Your child should already have brought the Curriculum Booklet home and you can follow this link to the Evening’s Presentation.

We remain in very close contact with PHE and we will continue to follow their advice and take precautions as required. We encourage all of our students to continue to follow the advice around sensible hygiene precautions (see the latest ENews). Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
