Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, I would like to extend my very best wishes to you all in these unprecedented circumstances.  My thoughts are with all of our students and their families.

Last night, you would have heard the Prime Minister announce new measures aimed at controlling the spread of Covid-19. You can read a summary of his address at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52014472.

Thank you very much for following government advice and keeping your children at home where possible. The latest advice on how to protect yourself and others against Covid-19 can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus. Please share this advice with your children.

Our school provision started yesterday for those students who cannot remain at home during this period.  We had a small group of students in school and this allowed us to operate in line with government guidance in respect of social distancing, to protect the students, their families and staff.  The students are being educated and looked after by a small group of staff, with the majority of staff now working remotely.

Our on-line programme of learning for students has now started. Whilst working remotely, it is important that students adhere to a good routine and complete work set to their daily timetable. They should contact their teachers with questions only at the times when they are due to be taught by them, in order to allow staff to manage the flow of messages.

Year 11 and Year 13 students will understandably be very anxious to know how their final grades will be determined.  We are working hard to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our students, but in particular for Years 11 and 13 in this unprecedented situation. We will provide more information to students in Year 11 and 13 as soon as it is released to schools.  You can read the information provided by the government at:

With best wishes,

Jamie Brownhill
