Ms George says: "I can read Margaret Atwood’s writing time and time again. One of the reasons I wanted to study Literature at A-Level is so I could explore The Handmaid’s Tale and I’m so glad I did! Her writing is absorbing and still (sadly) politically relevant https://t.co/lD4IR8V5sw

Social Distancing in School - What to Expect

We’re really looking forward to seeing our Year 10 boys once a week when school reopens on Monday 15th June. 

This page explains some of the changes we’ve made to the classrooms, canteens and corridors – all designed to keep you, your families and our staff safe. Don’t worry, you’ll soon get used to the changes, but here’s what to expect.

The whole school is going to feel much quieter, because there will never be more than around 60 boys in the whole building.

Students will look different too, because we're asking you to leave your blazers, bags and ties at home please. The only uniform you'll need is a shirt, a jumper if you want one, trousers and shoes. Ideally clothes will be washed each week.

Entrance


When you arrive...

We've fitted special sinks in the playground, so the first thing you'll do when you arrive in school is to wash your hands. We'll also check your temperature using an infrared thermometer, for the safety of our community. Please travel directly to school and do not congregate with friends either before or after school.

Sinks 2


In your classroom...

All your lessons will take place in one classroom. You’ll be taught in a group of 15 boys and you’ll stay with that group all day.

There are just 15 desks in each class, so everyone can stay two metres apart. All your lessons will take place in one classroom, with the teachers coming to you. In fact, only your group of 15 will use your classroom. Once you’ve left it, nobody else will use your classroom for a week.

We’ll give you your own bag of pens and stationery (below) which is just for you to use. After your lessons, just leave everything in the classroom and it will be waiting for you next time. So there's no need to bring your own stationery to school.

Pens

Your learning will still be done online at home, but your lessons are a chance to discuss and ask questions in a way that you can’t really do online, which will really help you.

You can bring your mobile phone and leave it on, so it can be used for 'track and trace', but it must be in your pocket and not on show.


In the corridors...

Everyone needs to keep two metres apart and we've put lots of arrows and lines in the corridors, including a one-way system around the school, to help keep everyone safe.

Arrows 2


In the canteen...

Every student will get a free lunch so there's no need to bring your lunch card. You'll have a one-pot hot dish, such as pasta or noodles, and a ‘grab bag’ with a drink and fruit.

After lunch there’s a chance to relax outdoors with your group before going home.

Outdoors


So remember…

  • No blazers, ties, bags or books please
  • No lunch money needed - your lunch will be free
  • Always stay with your group of 15 boys
  • Mobile phones are allowed but must be kept out of sight
  • Stay two metres apart and wash your hands when asked

So that's it! We hope that gives you a bit of an insight into how we are going to keep our whole community safe. We're really looking forward to seeing you.

And a big thanks to William, Syed, Nathaniel and Ben, who were in school today and volunteered to be our models!
