    The news of the death of the Queen last week was a significant moment for all of us. On Friday morning all the Schools and Colleges in the Trust showed their respect to mark the beginning of the national period of mourning in various ways. Pupils and students reflected on the Queens’ life and in particular over 70 years, her service to our nation.

The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust will be open as usual over the next week through the national mourning period.

If you believe your child may need some additional support at this time please do not hesitate to contact their form tutor.
