The Highcrest Academy

End of Term Arrangements

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to give you advance notice that the last day of term will be Wednesday 16 December.

This is to allow our cleaning contractors to undertake a thorough deep clean of the academy on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 December, prior to it being locked for the Christmas period.

Wednesday 16 December Arrangements

As usual on the last day of term, students will be dismissed after lunch by their Head of Learning at the approximate staggered times below:

Year 12/13: 12.20pm from the field gate

Year 11: 12.30pm from the field gate

Year 10: 12.30pm from the main gate

Year 9: 12.40pm from the field gate

Year 8: 12.40pm from the main gate

Year 7: 11.50pm from the main gate

On payment of £1 (which will be donated to this year’s chosen charity, Wycombe Homeless Connection) pupils will be allowed to wear their own clothes. Students must ensure that their choice of clothes is appropriate and suitable for the weather conditions.

If parents cannot make suitable arrangements for their children in the afternoon, please inform the school as soon as possible.

Please also note that pupils return to school on Monday 4 January 2021 at their allotted start time, as per this term.

Your sincerely

G D Burke

Principal
