School is closed to students in years 8,9,10 &12 from Wednesday 18/3/20.
School is closed to students in years 7,11 &13 from Thursday 19/3/20.

Currently this closure is until further notice, in line with national guidance. 


Stay at home, protect the NHS, SAVE LIVES


It is with great regret that we find ourselves in a situation of school closure.  As a result of an increasing number of staff, who are unable to work as a result of Coronavirus and government advice on self-isolating, we are unable to safely and effectively accommodate students in school. 

Please be assured that although we are in increasingly challenging times, we remain entirely committed to the education of our students.  Details of how we are doing this are available in the correspondence below:

Coronavirus - School Closures Letter 17.3.20

Whilst we all continue to try and make sense of and manage this changing situation, we encourage everybody to support one another and take seriously all government guidance – please see the links below for updated advice:

Please continue to take good care of yourselves and your families; we look forward to seeing our students back in the near future.  Please remember that we are in effect working from home and remain available to educate and support our young people at this difficult time.

Best wishes

Mr Warwood – Associate Headteacher



Year 11 & 13 Examinations
