Important information about coronavirus (covid-19) 
We are constantly evaluating the situation regarding the spread of Covid-19, and we are in regular liaison with the Department for Education (DfE), Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS to ensure we prioritise the wellbeing of our school community. Please visit our news page for more information about our response and actions, and for links to other useful resources, including our visitors guide during the Covid-19 outbreak. We will also continue to keep you informed by email. If you have any questions about our response to the Public Health England’s guidance, please contact Justin Spanswick, Executive Headteacher, on 01628 327717.

Water Bottles
Please be aware that the school no longer sells single use plastic water bottles, so all boys should bring their own named water bottle to school. Furthermore, we will not be supplying water bottles for training or fixtures, so again boys will need to remember to bring their own water to sport and matches.
