School campus now open

After a prolonged absence from the classroom, Tuesday April 7th saw the first day back on campus for the older students, giving them a chance to reconnect with friends face-to-face (at least behind masks) and catch up with their teachers.

With safety a priority, there were some noticeable – and some more subtle - changes to routines, from temperature checks at the front gate to social distancing at lunch and in class; but some things hadn’t changed, and once friendships were rekindled, students got down to the serious business of learning. 

Just some of the measures taken to ensure safety include:

• Two temperature checks on entrance, both by hand with infra-red thermometer and using our state-of-the-art camera as all staff and students pass through our single entrance point, and a further temperature check after lunch.

• The suspension of our swimming programme and the closure of PE changing rooms. Students will continue to have PE lessons, but will wear PE kit throughout the day on those days.

• No ties – students and staff took a slightly more casual approach as we removed ties (research shows ties are washed a lot less often than other clothing items)

• Social distancing at lunch, the replacement of all plates and cutlery with disposable, single use items (although students are encouraged to bring their own reusable items and wash them at home to reduce the environmental impact) and the removal of the self-service items like the salad bar.

• Regular ventilation of classrooms, alongside our Positive Air Pressure filtration system that continues to run, giving classrooms the cleanest air possible.

As one of the first schools to re-open their campus in the world, we are delighted to have this opportunity and are looking forward to our oldest students being joined by others as the weeks progress.
