Autumn Return to School

August 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

In my letter to you last week I said I would write to you with further information regarding the students return to both The Castle Rock School and The Newbridge School at the beginning of the Autumn term 2020.

We have spent time over the Summer break planning for their safe return and are using 26th to 28th  August as a period of induction and familiarisation, with the intention that all students of both schools will be in lessons and following their timetables from Tuesday 1st September.

My letter last week set out the times for which students in different year groups are to attend school from 26th – 28th August. These days will enable us to spend time with each year group bubble and introduce them to the ‘new’ normal.

I will send detailed information shortly, explaining how we intend to run the timetable, social distance, keep students in their designated year group ‘bubbles’ from arrival to leaving both sites, and ensure the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff.

Please be assured that we have been working to ensure the safe return of our students and will inform you of all of our plans in detail next week.

Yours faithfully


Julia Patrick
CEO Apollo Partnership Trust

Executive Head The Castle Rock School and The Newbridge School
