Dear Parents & Carers,

I hope you and those close to you are coping as well as possible with the current unusual situation. I am writing to update you on the progress of our Year 9 Options process.

Normally, we would have been finalising the options with students and their families over the past term. However, various aspects of this process have been made more challenging by the decision for schools to remain closed to the majority of students since 20th March. My aim is to send confirmations to you soon after half term.

I appreciate that you are keen to receive this news as soon as possible, but I can assure you that the course decisions themselves are not being affected by the school closure. I am grateful for your patience.

Please do get in contact if you have any specific questions regarding the options for a student.

Yours faithfully,

Mr N Lamb

Deputy Headteacher
