As we now approach the end of the first term in the 2020/21 school year, I wanted to write a short message to thank you all for your support in enabling us to continue to provide education through what has been a very different calendar year.

Despite us entering a second lockdown, and with all of the associated uncertainties that this has imposed upon us, I would like to personally thank you all in supporting our college in terms of children attending the centres. Our attendance throughout the COVID 19 has been well above the national average for similar providers, and this is down to the good work of your children and yourselves, that makes all the difference in allowing us to provide our excellent educational offer.

There is now light at the end of this long tunnel, and with your support we will all get through this pandemic together. Therefore, it is important to emphasise that we will strongly encourage your children to adhere to our COVID 19 risk management measures, namely, wearing face coverings (for those who are able to do so) in communal areas around the school. I would also like to point out that all pupils must wear face coverings in public transportation to and from school including taxis.  This is compulsory. As a school, we will provide a clean and safe environment for both pupils and staff.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and happy festive season, we are looking forwards to seeing you all in the new year.

Warm regards,

Doug Thomas
