Dear Parents & Carers

I am so delighted to be welcoming our kids back into school on Monday. Over the past two days we’ve managed to carry out approximately 1,600 lateral flow tests and the whole process has gone remarkably smoothly, largely thanks to the maturity of the students and the Herculean efforts of the team here.

With schools re-opening and the data on transmissions, vaccines and fatalities all improving, it looks like we’re heading in the right direction. However, we mustn’t be complacent.
