PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.


Thanks for letting us know, we’ll let the year head know who can investigate further. If you do experience any issues they are your first port of call.


We’ll keep parents fully up to date prior to further live lessons being delivered.


That’s great to hear!


For some year groups, students are working through set work via SharePoint and their online taught lessons will begin after Easter.


Absolutely, but not perfect....yet! It’s a huge change for staff and students and we’re really pleased with the effort they have put in so far. Well Done! 😊


A great effort from staff and students today. Our online lessons got off to an excellent start.

Thank you to the teachers and staff in schools across the country this morning - you are part of our vital front line in the fight against coronavirus. Help schools to focus on the children who need a place most, and keep your kids at home if you can.


Retweetd From HACH PE DEPT

Just a reminder that will be holding physical activity sessions every morning starting from Monday. So get up and get active from the comfort of your own home.


We don’t know when the school will re-open to all students. We have to wait for the government to make that decision. We will open to the children of Key Workers on Monday if that applies to you, please let us know.


As we come to the end of an incredibly challenging week. We thank our fantastic staff, parents and most importantly students for their support & understanding. We cannot wait to be able to welcome everyone back when we are able to do so.
