Reopening arrangements

As you are all aware, the Prime Minister has announced that schools are reopening to all students from
Monday 8th March.

As part of this reopening, schools are expected to facilitate lateral flow testing for all students and staff. The government realises that this is a big logistical operation and so they have given us some flexibility for a staggered start during that first week. We will be operating a staggered start on Monday 8th March and Tuesday 9th March with all students fully back in school by the end of the day on the Tuesday. Years 7, 8 and 9 will return on Monday 8th March at staggered times and Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 will return on Tuesday 9th March at different intervals. All students will have to arrive using the Fresson Road gate on their first day back. It is important to read further details on our reopening arrangements in the letter available to download below.
