Dear Parent/Carer

Coronavirus (COVID-19 – see advice from NHS on symptoms and things you can do to help stop germs like coronavirus spreading).

With the closure of schools, we envisage a serious delay in the Year 7 Appeals for September 2020 and for any in-year applications for school places.  Please be assured that we will process your application as soon as we can and there is no need to contact us unless there is a change in your circumstances.

We are monitoring government guidance and considering the possible impact of the coronavirus on school appeal related duties.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
