Letter to Parents 14th July

July 14th 2021


Dear Parents


Thank you for your support of your daughters and sons and of course of us.

This Friday July 16th, is the last day of term. We will run a normal school day and finish at 3pm.

Today, we have been giving out to students on a first-come first- served basis a limited number of free bus passes provided by Kent County Council for use by students in Years 7 – 13 over the summer holiday. Details on how to obtain a pass for your daughter or son is contained within the link: Free bus travel for young people

We have now had a total of 13 positive cases of COVID-19 amongst our students in the last 2 weeks. Our on-site testing is picking up a good number of these cases and helping to keep everybody safe. However, of the number of students we have sent home to self-isolate, most have been social close contacts from break, lunch or the journey to school, rather than classroom close contacts. Please remind your daughter or son to restrict their social contact to students in their teaching group, as far as is possible and to socially distance at 2 arm lengths whenever they can.


Yours sincerely


Sonette Schwartz
