Useful Documents – Senior

Following my communications earlier this week I am writing to you all with the details of how we plan to carry out the testing in advance of School restarting on the 8 March. At the outset, may I reassure you all that testing will be one of many covid mitigations we have in place for the remainder of this term, the full range of which will be communicated to you all next week.

We are also pleased that the needs of our boarding community have been included in the DfE guidance, and we have included a specific section for boarders in this communication.
