  • Message from Mr Seymour: School will reopen on Tuesday 19th September

    Monday 18th, 9am

    Dear Parents and Students,

    I am pleased to be able to inform you that we will be reopening the school from Tuesday the 19th September.

    Contractors have been working over the weekend to ensure the school grounds are safe for pupils but we would like to ask parents to remind their children that the site of the fire is still very hazardous and a working building site.

    Normal drop off and pick up arrangements will be in place on Tuesday as there is now full access to the school site.

    If any parent has any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the school reception.

    Due to the Great Britain cycle race and travel disruption

    As you are no doubt aware, the Great Britain cycle race arrives in Newark on Wednesday 6th September and we have been advised by a number of local bodies that this will cause significant disruption to travel in and around Newark. Many of the local bus companies have also advised us that normal services will be severly disrupted and many will be cancelled due to road closures.

    As the girls arrived to school they gathered in the sports hall ready for our VIP guest speaker, Dee Higgins, and the warm up kindly organised by Newark Leisure Centre and delivered by their v...
