School Closure - Bank Holiday confirmed Mon 19th Sept 2022 to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II state funeral

Dear Parent/Carer
We have had confirmation that Monday 19th September 2022 has been designated a Bank Holiday to mark the state funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As a result of this change the college will be closed to staff and students. We will not be setting work to be completed on this day and would encourage students to watch the events as they unfold.
There are no plans to add this day back to the academic year over the coming months. The number of schools days has been adjusted from 190 to 189 for the remainder of this academic year.
We have limited our usual social media updates and publications to mark the period of national mourning. We will keep our notifications for the week ahead for only those updates that are urgent in nature.
Yours faithfully
Simon Warburton
