COVID-19 and wider reopening

Latest update – Thursday 11th March 2021

This webpage provides the latest school information in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19).  We will continue to update this page as the situation develops and where Government and other relevant professional guidance changes.  We would encourage you to check our website regularly for these updates. 


The School continues to work hard to achieve the safest possible environment for boys, staff and our wider community.  We hope that this will also allow us to maintain the highest possible levels of attendance in school for all boys in all year groups. 
National and regional trends are, of course, concerning and we must all be ready in case there is a requirement for groups of boys to self-isolate if we were to experience coronavirus cases in school. 

We will continue to update parents but in the meantime you can read below the following documentation:

We really enjoy the feeling of community. Within a few weeks of starting, our son knew every other boy’s name in all the year groups and the teachers knew him.
