As you will be aware, the refurbishment of the school has been underway since September 2022 with Contractors Morgan Sindall working to remodel “Phase 1” creating a new science and technology area. The works to this phase are almost complete and the school will be moving into the new classrooms in time to start the spring term in January 2024. For Morgan Sindall to continue works next term to the “Phase 2” area of the school, the school also need to vacate this area by January.  School staff are therefore required to pack up their classrooms by the end of term to allow the contractors to move all equipment and resources into their new classrooms in the new year. Staff will also need to unpack their new classrooms ready to teach pupils when they return from their Christmas holidays.

As a result, it has been agreed between the local authority and the Governing Body that Thursday 21st December and Monday 8th January will be closure days for the school, with pupils returning on Tuesday 9th of January.

The school also has one INSET Day on Friday 22nd December meaning that pupils last day in school this term will be Wednesday the 20th of December.

We would like to apologise to all parents/carers and pupils for any  in convenience caused and want to provide reassurance that all steps are being taken to ensure smooth transition into the next phase of refurbishment.

We will provide further updates as the refurbishment project progresses during the forthcoming academic year.
