*We had previously published that lessons would conclude for Y12 on Friday 10th July. This was to allow us the time in the final week of term to re-enrol our Y12 students into Y13. However as we are now re-enrolling students in a different way due to COVID19, we will continue teaching until Friday 17th July (morning session only) as per the arrangements outlined in the timeline for reopening.

Please note: The following days are utilised for in-service training activities:

  • Friday 25th October 2019
  • Friday 29th November 2019
  • Monday 2nd December 2019
  • Monday 20th July 2020
