Queens’ Platinum Jubilee Holiday: Monday 24th January 2022

In the Autumn Term newsletter I drew attention to the extra bank holiday that has been announced for 3rd June 2022 to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the implications that this has for St Christopher’s.

The 3rd June falls during the summer term half term break and as a consequence the Department for Education has amended its regulations to allow schools to close at another time in order to give staff and pupils an extra day off. This approach follows the precedent established in 2012 at the time of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The governors have agreed that Monday 24th January will be the nominated day and as a result the school will be closed on that day.

Yours sincerely,

R D Jones
Headmaster
