School Closure – Year 8 students only – Friday 25th March 2022

Dear Parent/ Carer of Year 8

The school has seen a rise in the number of staff Covid-19 cases over the last 48 hours with new cases being reported today.  We have reviewed the cover needs for tomorrow, and the number of lessons that require cover and we have tried to secure external supply staff as well. Unfortunately, it has become clear that we will not be able to safely run the school at full capacity with the projected number of absent staff.  We are therefore going to close the school tomorrow for Year 8 students. 

Work for Year 8 will consist of live streamed lessons at their normal lesson time. Students will access these by opening Teams and clicking the blue “Join” button on the Year 8 Team when the lesson starts. They should have their exercise books or some paper and a pen available at the start of the lesson.

If you experience any ICT problems please email

If you have any other questions or concerns about the work please email

Kind Regards

Maurice Dixon – Senior Vice Principal
