Partial Opening Friday-
As you will be aware we have spent the day working to assess and repair the damage caused by the flooding that occurred overnight. There remain some areas that are currently unusable but some parts of the site have been unaffected. Therefore we are in a position to re-open tomorrow for students in Year 7, 11, 12 and 13.
Students in these year groups should attend school on Friday morning as normal and make their way to their form rooms. Much of the ground floor is still out of bounds so students in Winston House should go to the dining hall for Form Time. During form time we will explain to students which of their lessons have been relocated to different classrooms. Mrs Astill (Winston SSA) will be based in the Lennon House Office tomorrow. As the Winston corridor will not be accessible, Winston students will not be able to access their lockers. We have also been told that due to the drying equipment that will be in use the school will be very warm and humid; as such it may be advisable for students to bring a bottle of water with them tomorrow.
Year 11 students have their planned Maths exam in the morning (period 1&2) and their Ethics exam in the afternoon (period 4 &5). During Period 3 students will be able to study independently in the dining hall, or alternatively will be offered the opportunity to take part in PE activities. Students should bring their kit if they wish to take part in this session.
At present we expect the school to be fully open again on Monday morning for all year groups, and will confirm this on Friday.
The Year 8 vaccinations that were scheduled for today will be re-arranged for a later date.
Clearly we are very sorry to have had had to close today, and for the inconvenience this may have caused but we are sure that you appreciate that the safety of students is a priority and we are grateful your continued support. We look forward to returning to normal on Monday.
Should you have any questions or concerns then please contact your child’s tutor or House Office.

UPDATE: We are currently uploading materials for students to access from home. Initially this will be through this website and we have created a page for each year group. You can access these pages from here:
Students have also had materials sent to their personal school e-mail accounts, and material is also available on the VLE.
There are also GCSE revision materials that were placed in the 'Examinations' section of the webite last week. This page can be accessed from here:
There are Maths revision materials available via the VLE. Students should look at the 'Autumn 2' papers.
