HM Elizabeth II RIP

The sad death yesterday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is an important moment for our country and city. Her passing will be widely mourned, and we join the whole country in extending our sympathies and condolences to the King and his family. The school will play its role in marking this symbolic moment, and teaching the children about the events of her reign, the monarchy’s place in the UK constitution, and the possible implications for the future life of the nation. As you would expect, we will take care to respect all views, and ensure that students have a chance to express their own feelings about the events taking place.
