Corona Full Closure

Most of you will already know that the Government has just announced the closure of schools from the end of the school day on Friday.

This letter is to confirm that New Mills School still intends to open to Year 7 and Year 11 tomorrow and Friday as outlined in our communication earlier today.

Teachers, school leaders and support staff will be using these two days to continue planning our  home-learning support for most of our students and developing on-site provision for a smaller, specific group during this uncertain period. We will ensure you have more precise information about this over the next few days.

We are also aware that other significant announcements were made about the public examinations previously scheduled for this summer. We understand and empathise with how worried and confused you must be by these developments and we will be in touch with you to advise on this as soon as more concrete information and detail emerges.

Meanwhile, please be reassured that New Mills School will continue to strive to support your child’s education to the best of our ability in these unfamiliar circumstances.

Yours faithfully 

Ms A Barker and Mrs C Jesson

Heads of School
