Following the sad news regarding the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Department for Education have announced the official date of the Queen’s state funeral will be Monday 19th September – This will be a bank holiday and all schools will be closed as a mark of respect.
Her Majesty lived an extraordinary life of public service and duty, providing constant compassion and reassurance, during times of great difficulty, uncertainty and anxiety; including during periods of international conflict, periods of social unrest, times of great economic hardship and recession and latterly, a global pandemic. Her dedication to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth is unparalleled and we thank her for her service.
Pupils will return to school on Tuesday 20th September as normal.
