Autumn Term 2021

We start the new academic year with enormous excitement. Despite the challenges we have faced during the pandemic, 2021-22 presents us with opportunities to resume much of our educational provision. It is important that we retain some of the processes and measures, however, so as to continue to prioritise the health and wellbeing of us all.

Amendments or adaptations may be necessitated by the local or national picture and we will keep you fully informed.

This document outlines the essential details and information and we encourage you to study it carefully.
