NEW UPDATE: Schools received notification late on Friday 17th March 2017 that Unison have suspended the strike action planned for this week (W/C 20.03.17). Due to this notification- school is open to ALL students this week. Due to the late notification, we have been unable to contact Transport for Monday so you will need to contact them directly to make arrangements.
We have spoken with Transport and the transport for your child will run as usual from Tuesday 21st March.
The Residential Department will be open as usual.
Please keep checking the website for regular updates.
