Last night’s government announcement: Boris Johnson has announced a complete lockdown of the UK, instructing people not to leave their homes or meet in groups of more than two people. This is to further enforce social distancing measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
With this in mind, you must only send your child to school if it is absolutely essential. It is important that no student or member of staff should come to school that has not been scheduled to do so. Students that are due to attend school must only do so where no safe alternative is available. We strongly encourage parents to make alternative arrangements where possible to reduce contact with people outside of the family home and risk spreading the virus.
We all need to play our part to keep ourselves safe and help reduce the strain on our local NHS services.
Thank you for your ongoing support during this challenging time.

On Friday 28th Feb, some of our performers from years 7, 9 & 10 visited the Troubadour Wembley Park theatre where they were given VIP access to a special meeting with star of Strictly Come Dancing and the lead of The Wedding Singer show, Kevin Clifton. Kevin spent time being grilled by our students as to his inspirations, favourite Dances and musical pieces, his favourite celebrities and his own coping strategies for pre-performance nerves. The pupils were interested to hear his thoughts about how movement can tell a story or evoke emotions in a person. He then took time to pose for photographs with pupils and staff and now the pupils were in the know, they were able to sit back to enjoy the Wedding Singer performance even more. Kevin would have been proud that the pupils as always were a credit to the Clifton name. It was clear that they had put time into thinking of the most interesting and relevant questions that they could.
The evening was a big success for all concerned.
Y11 Parents Evening has been cancelled- further information to follow.
