School Closure – Continuing pupils’ learning


Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, the school closed from the end of the day on Friday 20th March. In line with the national guidelines a small number of pupils whose parents are key workers are being cared for in school.

Staff had been preparing for this eventuality and extensive use is being made of electronic resources to support pupils. The school is in regular email contact with parents and pupils; staff are available to provide support, advice and guidance on all matters as though the school were open. Throughout the closure, we will be working with parents to continue pupils’ learning in this difficult time.

We are proud of our strong school community and the Headmasters of the Senior and Junior Schools have been sending regular videos to pupils to support them pastorally and academically. Pupils have also received regular video sporting challenges encouraging them to stay active and healthy.

We have been delighted by the number of photos and videos that SGS families have shared with the community.

Although apart, together we will stay strong and connected and look forward to returning to school.
