School update 12 noon - Wednesday 30 March

Dear Parents, Carers and Families

We are up and running, and expecting all students to attend as usual until term ends at 3.15pm on Friday 1 April. Our IT is damaged, and our usual phone lines and emails will not be operating fully this term.

If you need to contact the school, please email and your message will be passed onto the relevant member of staff. 

Students should bring all their equipment, including kit for PE and Dance. Assessments and moderation are going ahead as planned, as will the Y11 mock results event on Thursday

The fire appears to have been caused by an electrical fault in our UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) which supports the servers in the event of a power outage. It will need to be replaced. The servers themselves are wet because of water that was used to put out the fire. They are being dried and cleaned. When this is complete, power will be applied to the servers to see the extent of any damage. We are working on plans for all eventualities. 

Thank you for your support.
