MPS mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

We express our deepest sympathies for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her dedication to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and to her other realms and territories is unparalleled and we thank her for her service.

Our school will observe the mourning period whilst continuing to support our students, families and colleagues. Unless otherwise stated, please assume any scheduled activities and events we have scheduled will continue as planned. We will observe the national holiday on Monday 19 September 2022 for Her Majesty’s funeral which means we will be closed on that day, but outside of this, the school's hours will continue as normal.

Our school will be keeping students informed of news about these events as part of assemblies and learning mentor activities. If you think your child may be experiencing particular upset due to the passing of the Queen, please do let us know so we can provide additional support if needed.

It is expected that there will be significant disruption across the UK, particularly in London, during this period, therefore we will endeavour to keep you up to date should there be any further changes. Should there be anything further we can support you with, please do contact us.

Thank you for your understanding.
