Information about testing and our return to the classroom ...
Before face-to-face teaching can resume, we are required to test all students using the Lateral Flow Testing process. Since lockdown we have been testing staff, keyworkers and vulnerable students in school using this method. However, the logistics of testing approximately 1100 people is huge and will require a significant workforce.
Therefore, from Thursday 04 March we will begin testing of all students, a year group at a time. Students will come into school for their Lateral Flow Test only and then return home to continue their virtual online lessons.
Over the course of 5 days we will endeavour to test all students. The timetable for testing will be as follows:
• Year 11: Thursday 04 March
• Year 9: Friday 05 March
• Year 10: Monday 08 March
• Year 8: Tuesday 09 March
• Year 7: Wednesday 10 March
Details about appointment times will be sent out this week.
All students will return to school for face-to-face lessons as normal on Thursday 11 March.

Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week.
