St Hugh's Temporary Closure

Following the announcement to the House of Commons by the Secretary of State for Education, St. Hugh's will be closed from the end of school on Friday 20 March.

Effective from Monday morning we will implement our plans to provide teaching and learning online, via the portal, so all our children’s education can continue.

I must thank all colleagues from across the school in every area who have taught, supported, catered for and looked after all our children in what have been very uncertain and trying circumstances.

Finally, thank you to all parents for your support and as we have navigated this unprecedented situation. I look forward to being able to welcome you all back to St. Hugh's when we start back with the business of providing the education in which we believe so wholeheartedly.

We wish everyone all the best in these challenging times and will provide further updates to the St Hugh’s community as we receive the information.
