Our school community paid tribute this morning to the country’s longest serving monarch. Her Majesty’s service over the past seven decades has been an inspiration.

During the period of mourning our public communications will be limited.

We appreciate this news will be upsetting for some and pastoral support will be available in school for those that need it.

As you will be aware, Monday 19 September is designated as a Bank Holiday for the State Funeral of the Queen. School will therefore be closed to all staff and students on this day, reopening as usual on Tuesday 20 September.
