As we come to the halfway point of our Easter break, Ackworth School is doing everything we can to keep abreast of the unfolding COVID-19 situation. The School is adhering to the emergency measures imposed by the Government some weeks ago. As such, a number of our staff are currently furloughed, this was not a decision taken lightly but the survival of the School is of paramount importance.

The Government is set to review the measures no later than Monday 13th April, however, it seems inevitable that we will return to an online learning scenario. Our SMT and teaching staff have been working tirelessly to find a solution which best accommodates everybody; as a UK boarding school this poses various unique issues. Please be assured that all feedback received is invaluable and taken into consideration. Further information with regard to the next steps taken will be published in due course.

Unfortunately, in line with the emergency measures , we have had to postpone the Easter Gathering. As it stands, we are hoping to go ahead with the open morning on Tuesday 5 May.

Above all, have a great Easter and keep safe.

Non sibi sed omnibus.
