Return to School: September 2021


Return to School

Students will return to school in September, in a staggered approach. Guidance from the government requires schools to conduct the rapid testing of students on their return after the Summer break. Full details of the rapid testing will be sent in a further communication.

This staggered return is for several reasons but mainly:
• To support our new Year 7 cohort as they begin their secondary school journey with us at #teambrakenhale, in the absence of transition
• To allow our Year 12 students to settle in to Sixth Form life
• To allow us to implement the rapid testing programme for all students before they fully return to school, as directed by the government

As a result, please refer to the table below which shows for each year group their return to school schedule. All students will return to school on Wednesday 8 September.
Whilst students are at home across the period Friday 3rd to Tuesday 7th September, Home Learning activities will be set on google classroom for Year 8 to 13.

Student Return to School Schedule: September 2021

Students should arrive for their Lateral Flow Device test (LFD) during the time indicated.

Students will be required to leave the site immediately after their LFD, except year 7 on Monday 6 September who will remain in school.

Google Classroom will be available for Years 8-13, from Friday 3 September to Tuesday 7 September.

*Year 12 appointments – students will be contacted directly about these.
