Keeping our community safe and learning
We are proud of the way that our School has dealt with the pandemic. In times of adversity, you learn about a lot about a community.
At St Margaret’s we acted swiftly, managing robust safety measures as well as prioritising routines, continuity of education and pastoral support. We taught a full programme of lessons online and enhanced our co-curricular offer to support children and families.
“We are most grateful to St Margaret’s for the ongoing updates and for the fantastic support that is being given at such a difficult time”
We continue to follow all the best practice in terms of testing, cleaning and social distancing.
The impact of COVID-19 on UCAS Applicants
The applicants for university 2021-22 have undergone two national lockdown periods. On both occasions, students were taught a full timetable using video conferencing platforms. This cohort has undertaken two online assessment periods and one in person in May 2021. Even when in School during this last year, some practical lesson activities were restricted, inhibiting their progress in some practical subjects. In place of cancelled work experience placements, pupils independently accessed virtual enrichment.
