End of School Year 2019-2020

Dear Parents and Students: as you know, since the 16th March the school has been providing online teaching and learning and will continue to do so until the end of the school year, which is the 26th June in our case.


The Local Education Authority has just published an Order, dated 31st May, regarding the end of the school year, stating that all schools will continue with the online teaching they have been providing since the face-to-face educational activity was suspended.

The Order also indicates that the schools may open for those students in Year 11 and Year 13 who may have difficulties to graduate or who have had problems accessing the online activities provided during the online teaching period, and who, voluntarily, wish to attend face-to-face reinforcement classes (in groups of up to 10 students).

In the British educational system, graduation in Y11 and Y13 is achieved through the external IGCSE and A Level exams, with results being announced in mid-August and, in the case of Y11, also through the Spanish subjects of Sociales and Lengua & Literatura. If there is a case of a Y11 student at risk of not fully graduating, due to the Spanish subjects, the school will contact the parents to offer them the possibility of going to school to receive reinforcement classes.

Please note that school buses will not be running for the arrival and collection of students. Also, there is no dining room service and the student must come to school with a mask. During the time that the student is in the school, the corresponding safety protocols related to personal hygiene (disinfection gel, frequent hand washing, and social distance) would be applied.

Likewise, the Order establishes the possibility of face-to-face counselling and guidance for Y11 and Y13 students, by previous appointment. This individualized attention will focus on tutoring or advice for the students by the tutor or, if necessary, by any other member of the educational team.

In addition, the school, will offer parent-teacher meetings for all year groups from Reception to Y13, which may take place by Zoom video call, by phone, or face-to-face.

For appointments regarding tutorial attention (Y11 & Y13) or parent/teacher meetings, please email:

Children or adults with symptoms related to COVID-19 or diagnosed with COVID-19, or who are in a quarantine period because they have had contact with someone with symptoms or diagnosed with COVID-19, cannot come to the school. Families need to monitor health and take the student's temperature every day before leaving home to go to school. If the student has a fever or symptoms related to COVID-19, they must not attend the school. They should call their health centre or the telephone number established by the Local Health Authority for COVID-19.

Students or adults with health conditions that make them more vulnerable to COVID-19 (such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease, cancer, immunosuppression, or high blood pressure), may come to the school, provided their condition is controlled and allows it, maintaining protective measures rigorously.

Families may only enter the school building where necessary or by indication from school staff and must always comply with prevention and hygiene measures.

Thank you very much for your support,

The Canterbury School Management Team
