SJP End of Year and Start of Year Arrangements

Dear Families

I hope you are well. First and foremost, I would like to start this letter by thanking you all for your support and cooperation throughout this academic year. Our students have had their first full academic year in school since September 2019, and we are very proud of them.

As you will expect, arrangements for the return of all pupils in September are well under way and there are a number of pertinent points that I would like to draw to your attention to:

We are starting the new school year with two staff development days on Thursday 1 September 2022 and Friday 2 September (a day on which only staff attend). 

Year 7 will return on Monday 5 September at 08:30 followed by Year 12 students at 09:30.

Year 11 and Year 13 will return on Monday 5 September at 11:00.

All other year groups will return to school on Tuesday 6 September at 08:30

Parentmail reminder

Please make certain that you top up your child’s account (on ParentMail if possible) so that they always have sufficient funds to be able to purchase food and drink. Of course, we will always ensure that no child goes hungry during the day should it slip your mind to top up.

A reminder of our uniform list and PE kit list can be found here.

I will write to you as the term progresses, but in the meantime, a reminder that school finishes on Friday 15 July at 12:00. Students will have brunch during the morning. If this early finish causes a problem for you, please let your child’s Head of Learning know. 

Kind regards


Maria Sharratt
