Prelims that were due to take place today have been rescheduled for Monday 29th January.
Unfortunately due to a combination of staff illness and some difficult travel routes we are unable to staff the school today and will have to close. We will ensure that young people who have arrived at school are able to return home safely or to an alternative address.
The weather forecasts provided by a number of organisations all point to heavy snow at points this afternoon. The current conditions of the roads and pavements around the school are a concern and we would prefer to get our pupils home in as much daylight as possible. For those pupils with prelims scheduled for this afternoon they can be re-assured that these will be rescheduled for a future date.
Due to the weather forecast and the safety of our pupils we will be closing at 2pm today. Lunch will still be available from 1.15pm.
PARENTS INFORMATION EVENING – FOURTH YEAR
There is a Parents’ Information Evening taking place on the evening of THURSDAY 18th January at 7pm in the Theatre. This is an informal evening where you will be given a short presentation about the options available in the senior school. You will then have the opportunity to ask members of the Senior Management Team and Guidance Staff. Refreshments will be available in the atrium. Letters went home on the 8th January with a tear off slip to confirm attendance.
