Back to School in September

We realise that we have sent out several communications about our return to school in September. So that all of this information is in one place, we have collated it all on this page, for your information and convenience.
We will update this regularly, so please come back as often as possible. In addition, we shall be monitoring the Kirk Balk Enquiries inbox throughout the summer; so please do get in touch if we can help at all: [email protected]

As a summary, this page includes:

  • Letters about our on-site lateral flow tests as we return in September
  • Videos that explain how to book a lateral flow test and what our test site looks like
  • Letters about the ‘return to school’
  • A video that explains our uniform expectations
  • Plus lots of other handy information
