Covid-19 Update

Following the Government’s most recent Covid-19 update on Sunday 10th May it is important to note that there are no immediate changes in the education or child care provision made by schools.

Therefore, schools will continue to provide distance learning support for students and child care for Key Workers who have provided 24 hours notice of their intention to use the child care facility. 

 

As you will be aware, the government has announced the expectation that Secondary schools will begin a phased transition to school based learning during Term 6 for selected Year groups.

 

We are working closely with the Local Authorities and the Department For Education to ensure the most effective and safe return to school for students and staff. We will be in contact you shortly to update you on our plans.

 

Please continue to check your mailboxes and this website for updates.


Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping students at home wherever possible.  Please note that because of staffing plans, parents of key workers should email office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or call 03333 602120 by 9am the day before to be eligible for provision the next day.

World Challenge students take on Snowdon

World Challenge students take on Snowdon

Students from The Rochester Grammar School travelled to Snowdon on Friday 28th February 2020 for their acclimatisation and training weekend for World Challenge.  A group of 30 students led by Miss Parry and other staff will be travelling to Tanzania in July 2020 for their World Challenge expedition.

A group of these students will be climbing Kilimanjaro during their expedition and needed to experience climbing a mountain and camping in challenging conditions.  As most of the students had completed either their Bronze and Silver DofE awards, the expedition leaders were pleased with how they performed despite the gale force winds and almost constant rain.

Unfortunately due to these weather conditions, the students were unable to climb to the summit of Snowdon but they walked to within 100 m of the summit. We look forward to hearing about their experiences later in the year.
