Further to our letter sent on the 12th March regarding industrial action called by a national union (NUT), we are now able to confirm that the school will be closed to pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 on the 26th March 2014.
We have not taken this decision lightly but it is now clear from the number of teachers who intend to take action that the school will not be able to provide adequate teaching cover or supervision for pupils in Years 7 to 9 on that day.
Year 10 will be continuing with their work experience and we hope to operate a reduced timetable for Year 11 in order to support their studies. School will start for all Year 11 students at 9.00am and will finish at 3.30pm. All students should ensure that they sign in when they arrive at school and sign out when they leave.
