Despite the best efforts of staff the Royal School will be closed on Tuesday, 12 December.
With very low temperatures and freezing fog forecast for Tuesday morning and all staff and parent car parks inaccessible, we believe it would not be wise to encourage pupils, parents, carers and staff to venture out. Although estates staff have made considerable efforts to ensure pathways in school are accessible and safe, we have no control over roads and pavements locally and therefore reluctantly have decided for health and safety reasons it is safest to remain closed.
With warming temperatures forecast on Wednesday, 13 December we hope to be open for our final day of the autumn term. Sadly the performance of Macbeth will have to be postponed until the New Year.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
