COVID -19 Information

URGENT: School closure until 15th April

Information for parents, carers, interviewees, students & our community

URGENT: School closure from 5pm Tuesday 17th March 2020

With heavy hearts we have made the decision that the school will be closing due to the pressure of having too many staff absent. The Department for Education and Public Health England have now advised that it “may be necessary if there are so many staff being isolated that the school has operational issues”. We have now reached this point and it has become impossible to operate as usual without significant consequences to everyone’s safety.

We have reluctantly made the decision to cease all performances and events for the foreseeable future.

School will be open on 18th MArch only for staff and students to collect work- between 9am-2pm.

After that, communication to the students regarding work will come from the school will via Google Classroom, Google Drive and email where relevant.  We will be sending out a further update in the coming days.  Please keep abreast of our website and your inbox.  We are continuously in communication with qualification and exam bodies and will share any updates with parents and students once we know more.

We acknowledge that closing the school has a huge impact. This is an unprecedented period of uncertainty for you, your child’s education, the staff, our community and the live arts industry at large. 

If you suspect that you have contracted COVID-19 (Coronavirus) do not come into Central.  Report your case and receive health advice by immediately phoning NHS 111.
