We are delighted to be able to welcome back all of our students and have been busy planning the details of how school will run smoothly and safely in September. All students will be back to school full time and will follow the full curriculum starting on the following dates:

Wednesday September 2nd Year 7 only (Normal Wednesday – 1.25pm finish)

Thursday September 3rd – Year 7, 8 and 9 normal school day

Friday September 4th – Year 7, 8 and 9 – normal school day

The students will remain in the ‘bubble’ of their year group. They will have dedicated areas during social times and students will use different dining areas from other year groups. Furthermore, each year group will have a different entry point to the school site:

Year 7: Sixth form entrance – located at the far side of the building

Year 8: Student entrance – located in the middle of the building

Year 9: PE entrance – located near the Sports Hall


The school day at Laurus Ryecroft will be changing in September. For more information please click here.

Canteen payments will be possible through a contactless card which will be issued to students at the beginning of term, see the canteen page for more information.

PE will take place in the curriculum as usual, though there will be some changes to routines and activities to minimise any risk, therefore, PE kit will be required as usual on the days that PE is timetabled.

Under new government guidelines please provide your child with a face mask on the first day of school. If you have any questions please read the letter below:
