School will be closed on Monday 19th September 2022 to observe the Queen’s funeral
As a Bridlington School Family we are taking time in each year group assembly this week to remember and reflect on the amazing life of Her Majesty the Queen. Adults and students alike are finding the loss of such a constant figure in our lives difficult to deal with. We have a large pastoral team in school that is well equipped to support your child through this emotional time. We have opened a Commemoration Book for students and staff to write in should they choose to do so.
You may be aware that King Charles III has formally declared that the funeral of Her Majesty the Queen will be a Bank Holiday on Monday 19th September.
In an email to schools and colleges, the Department for Education said: “The official date of the State funeral is 19th September 2022. This day will be a Bank Holiday and settings that are normally closed on a Bank Holiday should close on this day as a mark of respect. This will include schools and colleges.”
Bridlington School will therefore be fully closed on Monday 19th September 2022 to observe the Queen’s funeral.
