COVID-19 and wider reopening

Latest update – Thursday 25th June 2020

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 Junior School is now open for all year groups from Nursery to Year 6 inclusive. There is further information here.

Year 10 and 12 at the Senior School have been able to attend The Grove site since Monday 15th June and boys in Years 7, 8 and 9 from Friday 26th June. Details of this provision can be viewed here. Boys may only attend school on the days and times that have been communicated to them.

The School is delivering continued on-site provision (COSP) on its Senior School site at The Grove only for boys:

  • Whose parents’ work is critical to the COVID-19 response. Our school community is very appreciative of the vital work that these parents are doing at this time.
  • With Education and Health Care (EHC) plans and/or who are vulnerable.

For all other boys and year groups, the School continues to provide education via remote teaching and learning.  Further details of these arrangements can be viewed here.

The School’s sites remain closed to all visitors other than staff, boys accessing our provision above and those providing essential services or supplies.

Our priority remains to ensure the health of our whole community, including boys and staff, and to do all that we can to help prevent the further spread COVID-19.

The School will continue to follow guidance being issued and updated by the Government, the Department for Education and other relevant professional bodies.

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.
