The safety, health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff remain our priority. We are being continually guided by the UK Government and other organisations, particularly the Boarding Schools Association’s Covid-Safe Charter, in our decision-making to ensure the safety of the whole school community.

The aim of the FAQs is to set out our current thinking and address questions we have encountered. We will be undertaking a regular review of our processes and intend to keep these pages updated as advice changes and our policies and approaches develop.

As soon as we are aware of any developments or changes, we shall update our FAQs.
