Congratulations on your child being offered a place in Year 7 at Thornleigh Salesian College for the academic year 2020/2021. We are delighted and look forward to welcoming your family into our community.
Once again we were over-subscribed for 280 places and, at the time of writing, there are 112 students on our waiting list.
As you will now no doubt be aware, part of the government response to the management of the Coronavirus has been that we close our school indefinitely to almost all children from Friday 20th March until further notice.
We are mindful that this is going to interrupt our planned KS2-KS3 transition programme for your child.
Therefore, I ask that you support us in being patient whilst we respond to government advice. We will post any updates about the re-scheduling of the programme as and when we have them on our school website and, when necessary, in writing.
At a time of real uncertainty and worry it is important that we all work together as a home, school and parish community. These are unprecedented events and we are all trying to navigate through them as best we can. We remain totally committed to your child’s transition to secondary school and we will continue to do our best to put a supportive programme in place.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your patience, your understanding and your support at this difficult time. I hope that you will join me in keeping in your prayers all that are being deeply affected by the current situation.
Associate Assistant Headteacher
