Today is the last day of a unique and I would say historic Spring Term. At this moment the world is hunkering down in the eye of the storm created by the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to say a special word of praise to the whole school community that is otherwise known as the Oakhyrst School family. My whole staff, the parent body, the Board of Governors and especially the children are all coping with things stoically. A special word of praise for those frontline Key Workers who are tackling the pandemic head on. Another special word of praise for those parents who are having to work from home, many of whom are looking after their children and helping them to access the online education that is being delivered daily. This is a team effort.
I trust that everyone will be able to enjoy a positive and happy Easter break. This is a difficult time and we must all behave responsibly and do what is necessary in order to keep our families, ourselves and our communities safe.
Stay safe and try to enjoy some quality family time.
Mr Alex Gear, Headmaster
