The school is once again experiencing extremely high levels of staff absence at the moment. We have therefore had to again make the very difficult decision to inform you that all Year 9 students should remain at home tomorrow (Thursday 31st March) and not come in to school. All other year groups should come to school as normal.

On Friday 1st April all year groups should come in as normal.

Whilst at home students should continue to access their usual lessons via their Google Classrooms which should have key resources and assignments available for them to learn from during the day.

Please be assured that this decision has not been taken lightly and we have tried to do everything to avoid this scenario but with the volume of teaching and support staff currently absent and all other contingencies fully utilised, there was no alternative.

Thank you all once again for your patience, support and cooperation.
