Arrangements for start of Autumn Term 2021

We look forward to welcoming our returning and new students to school from Thursday 2nd September.

The letter at the bottom of this page includes details of arrangements for each year group's start of term.


Testing and Tutorials 2nd-3rd September

To support a smooth start and to comply with Department for Education arrangements for Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) in schools, there will be a staggered start to the term. 

Each year group will attend for a short time on either Thursday 2nd or Friday 3rd September, to take a Lateral Flow Test and then (subject to a negative result) attend a 1-hour Tutorial session.

Thursday 2nd September - New Year 7, Year 8 and Sixth Form Students

Friday 3rd September - Years 9-11

Students will be in school for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes on their testing and tutorial day.

Year 7 and Year 12 students will attend an Induction Day on Friday 3rd September.


Week beginning 6th September

Normal lessons will resume on Monday 6th September – students will be briefly withdrawn from individual lessons for second LFTs on Monday and Tuesday of this week. 

On Monday 6th September Year 7-11 students must arrive at school by 8.30am. Year 12 and 13 students must arrive at school by 11:15am for lessons to start period 3. 


Students should return to school in full uniform, with their PE kit in their bag to be worn only in PE lessons. Full details can be found on our Uniform Page 


We can't wait to see all our returning students and to meet all the new students joining us for this new school year.
