School Closure

The school remains closed and ‘remote education’ continues to be the predominant form of education for all our students.

The Heateacher has written to parents/carers regularly over the last few weeks as we continue to change how we work in line with Government advice. 

Face-to-face support is being offered to Year 10 & Year 12 students from Monday 22nd June, for those students who have indicated that they want to come into school. Details of how this will work will be shared with parents/carers.

If you are worried about the safety and welfare of a child during the closure and you feel that they are at risk of significant harm, please contact Wirral Safeguarding Board:

Wirral Integrated Front Door Team
Mon-Fri, 9.00am-5.00pm telephone: 0151 606 2008
