Dear Parent/Carer

We have been made aware of several members of Year 11 who have tested positive for COVID 19.
Following advice from Public Health we are asking year 11 students to work from home tomorrow; Wednesday 24th November.

Work will be available on Show my Homework.

I will write to you tomorrow to outline the temporary arrangements that will be put in place until Friday 3rd December.

Students will be returning to school on Thursday 25th November with these arrangements in place. It is hoped the chain of transmission will be broken by Friday 3rd December allowing us to return to a normal timetable on Monday 6th December.

Public Health have advised all Year 11 students to laterally flow test daily until Friday 3rd December and for all year 11 students (unless medically exempt) to wear masks in communal areas.

We have been made aware that Year 11 have social events planned this coming weekend. Can I strongly advise that you encourage your child not to attend these events as this will inevitably result in more students testing positive.

If you have any questions, please email

Yours sincerely

Chris Ash
