Updates on the frequently-changing Covid-19 situation can be found here on the website, as well as on our Facebook page and in our newsletter. Any urgent updates will be sent via School Comms.
All staff and pupils are expected to continue with home testing twice weekly. Please contact the school if you require additional testing kits.
Following the recent Government recommendation, the School Age immunisation service (SAIS) will be visiting all secondary schools across Hampshire over the next 6 weeks to offer all students age 12 – 15, in years 7-11 a single dose of COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine.
What to do if you are a parent/carer who has COVID-19 and is self-isolating, and therefore cannot transport your child to and from school
In line with the latest Government COVID-19 guidance, if a parent/carer is self-isolating with COVID-19, your child should have a PCR test as soon as possible and can still attend school if they do not have symptoms.
If you are in this situation and are unable to transport your child to and from school because you are self-isolating, and you have not been able to identify a trusted friend or relative who could help, please let the school know so we can try to assist. Please note that if your child tests positive for COVID-19 they are legally required to self-isolate. Contact reception for more information.
Home testing should be completed twice each week:
Test 1 - Sunday evening or Monday morning
Test 2 - Wednesday evening or Thursday morning
Results will be checked on Monday and Thursday.
Please call reception if you have had any issue submitting results

The video opposite will guide you through the process of completing a test.
Step 1: When you have completed the test and received a result you are required to first register this with NHS Test and Trace
