IMPORTANT UPDATES

Update letter for Y10 students for week commencing 29.06.20

Year 10 Limited Re-opening from w.c 15th June

Following the survey that was sent out by text last week we have now been able to all those Year 10 students who indicated they would like to come into school a specific day each week for their 3 hour offer of face to face time with their teachers.

Below is a letter that has detailed information regarding this, however, this letter will also be posted to you with your child's specific arrangements e.g. what day/time they have been allocated, what group they are in and what entrance to school they should use, as these will be different for every student.

A member of the school admin team will also try to contact you today or tomorrow to discuss this over the phone with you and inform you what day and what group your child has been allocated.

If you are told your child is in;

GROUP A- They should enter at the main school entrance-Queue at front of school near main reception​ on the yellow markers.
GROUP B- They should enter at the Chatsworth Road entrance- Queue at side entrance/POD on the yellow markers.
GROUP C- They should enter at the main school entrance-Walk through the dragon gates, past PE and queue near Student services entrance on the yellow markers.

Click here to see the detailed letter from Mr Ross (this will also be posted to you).
