Public Health England have extended the flu vaccine offer to Year 7 as well as primary years. The hope is to vaccinate as many children as possible, which should help stop the spread of the seasonal flu, therefore taking pressure off the NHS as we work our way through the winter.

The vaccination would be administered in school on Friday 11th December. Please complete the consent form (link below) and email it to Mr Samuel on if you would like your son to receive this vaccination.

You can read more about the flu vaccine in this leaflet Protecting Child Against Flu DL leaflet 2020

On Thursday 3rd September, we welcomed our new Year 7 students to our Central Foundation school community. The students had an induction to the school routines and systems which this year included Covid-19 health and safety measures implemented by the School.

The students learnt about the School’s ethos and guiding principles of humanitas that encompass kindness, culture, being courteous and active in one’s participation in the community and in bringing about improvement to society.  We were delighted with the start made by the new Year 7s; they displayed excellent learning behaviours in their lessons and we saw the start of the formation of many new friendships.  On Friday, Year 7s were joined by Year 11 students.

Please see below some photographs illustrating the first day of Year 7 students and some safety measures put in place by the School.
