The past ten days or so have been characterised by a great deal of information and some confusion based on announcements made by the government.
In this week’s update I would like to give you some clarity and reassurances.
It is clear that for all year groups, for the remainder of this academic year, the main delivery of learning will continue to be online.
We might be supplementing this for Years 10 girls through sessions offered in school at some point after half-term if the Prime Minister announces on Thursday 28th May that the country is moving to step 2 of the recovery plan.
As we approach the end of this half-term I send my thanks to students and parents for their support of the school during this very difficult time. The way people have engaged in the online programme has been tremendous and we now need to enhance our provision further to ensure that we continue to achieve excellence in the second half of the term.
May all of you celebrating the end of Ramadan have a very blessed Eid – ‘Eid Mubarak’. May everyone enjoy the bank holiday weekend and whitsun half term. No online lessons will be set next week. I hope you and your family are able to find some space to switch off, or at least to switch off as well as any of us is able to in these strange times.
With very best wishes,
