˟  School and boarding houses closed from 4.30 pm Friday 30 April to 7pm Monday 3 May for day and boarding pupils.

˟˟  It is worth noting that there is a potential disruption to the end of this academic year as the Government look at when the Summer GCSE/A Level examinations will take place due to the disruption Years 11 and 13 have had last academic year.  If the dates for the exams are put back to after half term it is likely that the school will have to stay open for Year 11 and 13 day and boarders so they can finish their exams.  This may run into the first week of the school holidays but alas we do not know at this time.  It is for this reason that we ask those students in Year 11 and 13 and the teaching staff (including residential staff) to be aware that this may impact the official end of term and to be on standby.  Unfortunately this is beyond our control but we will share information as soon as exam dates are published.
