Over the last couple of days we have had a number of positive COVID-19 cases in year 11. As a consequence, the decision has been made to close the Y11 bubble until the new year. Work can be found through the on-line academy on the academy website. Click here for information on how to access it. Where possible staff will deliver 'live' lessons to their classes for the next week until Thursday but as we have a significant number of staff absent it will not always be possible. As I'm sure you can appreciate, the decision to send a year group home is never taken lightly and this is especially true with Y11 but the circumstances are such that it is not safe to have them in the academy. I sincerely hope you all have a good Christmas and we look forward to welcoming Y11 back in the New Year.
