Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Our thoughts and best wishes at this time go out to the many people thousands of people around the world who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 virus and to the incredible key workers who are fighting the virus on our behalf.

As the situation in the UK has continued to improve we have been delighted to welcome some of our pupils back into school over the last few weeks. The safety and wellbeing of our pupils and staff, and that of the wider community, remain our priority and we have put extensive safety, hygiene and social distancing measures in place for this.

You can read full details of these protective measures on the School Policies section of our website.

The rest of our pupils are continuing to learn from home for the time being via live video lessons and our on-line learning platform. We are also continuing to educate a small number of key worker and vulnerable children in school and we are delighted to be able to support these amazing families at this challenging time.

The majority of our staff are continuing to work as normal from home or in school, supporting pupils and parents and continuing the day to day running of our family of 3 schools.

Our absolute priority at this time is to maintain as much normality as we can for the children and to support them academically and emotionally at this unsettling time. To continue to develop their deep passion for learning and their love of life.
