Coronavirus Advice & Information

Our Residential School site at Peters Marland and our Secondary Day School site at Barnstaple from Monday 23rd March are closed until further notice due to suspected (unconfirmed) Covid-19 infection of two staff members.  This is a precautionary measure undertaken in accordance with national guidance. 


Our Primary school closed at the end of the day on Tuesday 24th March following the Prime Minister’s statement the previous evening and resultant parental choices.


Staff will be in regular contact to deliver remote home based learning opportunities for our pupils / students, in addition to weekly pastoral phone / remote welfare contact.


We continue to monitor our overall situation on a daily basis and will post an update on our website and/or contact you when things change.


Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support with these extraordinary but necessary actions.
