We will be reopening fully on 7th September.

Dear Parent, Carer,

I write on behalf of the directors of the Academy Trust. They wish to convey their thanks to you for the positive support and co-operation you have shown the schools during this enormously challenging and worrying time which we have all faced. They are very mindful that the whole academy including staff, pupils and parents have worked as a supportive community which has been extremely powerful and effective.

The great news is we will be welcoming all children and students back to school on 7th September. Details about the arrangements for your child/children will be sent next week. This will explain how your child will join in September. For those children and young people who are back in school for part of this term, the schools will close next Thursday evening (16th July) for the Summer holidays. The parent support phone lines will still be operational during the whole of the holidays.

Sadly, there will be no Summer clubs running this holiday as we have a big task preparing the schools and staff for the safe restart for all. 

I will be joining the school to welcome back the students and all staff for the first week of term and will then hand over to Kirstie Fulthorpe, the new CEO. I will write to you before I leave.

I wish you a safe holiday period.

Best Wishes,

Elaine Colquhoun OBE
Chief Executive Officer
